Paciocco and Stuesser’s Law of Evidence, now in its 5th edition, is the most versatile text available on the Canadian law of evidence. The text has been cited and relied upon hundreds of times by courts of all levels across Canada, in both civil and criminal cases. It has also been adapted by the National Judicial Institute for their electronic bench book for trial judges. The new fifth edition carries on the practice in earlier editions of using new appellate level authorities to illustrate the law. It also chronicles significant changes in the law of self-incrimination and hearsay, as well as providing a concise and organized guide for dealing with section 24(2) exclusionary applications in the Grant era.
