The course on Law of Evidence is one of the foundation papers in law. We need to have a fine understanding of the concepts and principles of law of evidence vis-a-vis civil as well as criminal matters. In our legal system where judges’ are neutral umpires who adjudicate over the subject matter of dispute or a criminal case, law of evidence teaches the crucial role played by written and oral evidences. There are various kinds of evidences which will be covered as part of this course to provide a holistic understanding about their distinct application and evidentiary value in the court of law. As part of this course, law students are also exposed to skillset of testing the veracity of the testimony of witnesses during examination-in-chief and cross-examination conducted in the court. This is a unique course in the law curriculum which sharpens the legal understanding, techniques of observation as a lawyer, outlook for details in cases and a habit of reconfirming evidences before presenting to the court.

Welcome to a course exposing you to the theatrics of life, cleverness of human mind, tussle between the law and the law breaker and the charm of a devil’s advocate.
