Welcome to the Gad & Birgit Rausing Library's guide to "Law of Evidence". Law of evidence is the core of the administration of justice in any society. Its aim is to promote the legitimacy of adjudication. The Law of evidence is the lex-fori- the law of forum or court. That is, Evidence law is ‘procedural law’ as opposed to ‘substantive law.’ Its context is trial; civil or criminal or commercial. Keeping this in mind, this course is designed in such a way that certain concepts of Evidence law are read along with criminal, civil, and commercial procedures. The core of overall understanding of the Evidence Law, in this course, is kept the current Qanun-e-Shahadat Order, 1984 in Pakistan.
