THE MODERN LAW OF EVIDENCE (OUP 2016) 6

“It would be unfortunate if the law of evidence was allowed to develop in a way which was not in accordance with the common sense of ordinary folk, not least, one might add, because it has to be used and understood not only by professional judges, but also by part-time judges, lay magistrates, jurors, and increasingly the police. Recent developments give some cause for cautious optimism.” A. Keane and P. McKeown, The Modern Law of Evidence (OUP 2016) 6
