   schema:description "Critical Perspectives on the Uniform Evidence Law comprises a collection of writing by the leading academics and practitioners in the field. It provides sustained critical analysis of a range of issues, including the implications of adoption of the legislation in overseas jurisdictions and the obstacles to enactment in the 'hold-out' States of South Australia, Queensland and Western Australia. The contributions explore the UEL's relationship with the common law and provide critical analysis of the operation of the law in relation to: assessment of probative value; tendency and coincidence reasoning; the admissibility of complaint evidence in sexual offence trials; judicial warnings in respect of unreliable evidence; establishing the expertise of those providing expert opinion evidence; admissions and confessions; and identification evidence. The book also provides comparative analysis of the UEL's credibility provisions and its approach to the admissibility of improperly obtained evidence."@en ;
