Exceptions to the Hearsay Rule
- 59 Downloads
In civil proceedings s. 1 of the Civil Evidence Act 1995 provides that evidence is no longer inadmissible merely on the ground that it is hearsay, although certain notice conditions generally have to be complied with to ensure the judge does not attach insufficient weight to the evidence (8.1 post). The notice provisions are unnecessary if the evidence is adduced pursuant to a separate statutory exception (8.2 post) or one of the few common-law exceptions preserved by the 1995 Act (8.3 post).
