This webinar will provide practical guidance to interpreting recent decisions relating to:
s 35 – Prior consistent statement rule
s 43 – Propensity
s 25 – Expert opinion evidence
It will list key principles and highlight complexities in the legislation that may trip up the unwary.

Criminal trials in which the jury hears no expert testimony, propensity evidence or evidence of a prior consistent statement are the exception rather than the norm, for all of these types of evidence are potentially admissible under the Evidence Act 2006 (the Act); indeed, such are criminal law staples.   

The purpose of this paper is twofold: first, to update practitioners in relation to how our highest courts are dealing with these types of evidence; and second, to explain what such treatment implies for those prosecuting or defending criminal trials.
