Evidence, proof and probabilities, rationality, scepticism and narrative in legal discourse, and the reform of criminal evidence have all been the subject of lively debates in recent years. This book brings together seminal and new essays from a leading contributor to this new evidence scholarship. Rethinking evidence contains a series of linked essays which consider historical, theoretical and applied themes from a broad interdisciplinary perspective. It brings together well-kwn papers and also includes substantial new essays on the nature and scope of the law of evidence, lawyers' stories, and the case of Edith Thompson. The final chapter outlines a general perspective on the processing and uses of information in litigation as the basis for a broad interdisciplinary approach to the study of evidence in law. These readable and provocative essays represent a major contribution t only to legal theory but also to the general study of discourse about evidence in many disciplines.
