Discuss and describe the procedural rules, ways and effectiveness how a:
(i) Civil case; and
(ii) Criminal case is brought to court.
Discuss and describe the dissimilar ways and rules that govern how “information” or indictment in a criminal case can be challenged and consequently be amended in case of it being defective?
(a) Compare and contrast the dissimilar rules and features governing the burden and standard of proof in both civil and criminal cases.
(b) “The art of advocacy is not only limited to examination in chief, cross examination and re examination”. Discuss and examine the evidential rules governing the probleming of witnesses in Court of Law?
“Relevance, however, doesn’t result in evidence being admissible; it is a condition precedent to admissibility. Our law excludes evidence of many matters, which in life, outside the Court sensible people take in consideration when making decisions.” (Per Lawton LJ in R v. Turner 1975). Discuss.
