The admissibility of evidence is central to the administration of criminal justice and the Evidence Act 2006 underpins all evidence that is able to be put before the courts at all levels. This webinar will examine some of the key developments in this area including the cross examination of witnesses (including cross examination about previous sexual experience under s 44 of the Act); improperly obtained evidence; and propensity.
