The principles of the law of evidence in civil and criminal cases.
The Law of Evidence lays out the set of rules and principles that govern whether particular proof of a fact will be rejected or admitted as evidence. Often, therefore, this means that the rules are largely concerned with stating what is not admissible evidence, followed by limited restorative exceptions.
