The defining feature of R.L. Sandes’ Criminal Practice, Procedure and Evidence (Irish Free State), published in 1930, was its focus on Irish case law and legislation. This novel approach was justified as "the logical consequence of our detached national status". By contrast, Heffernan’s twenty-first-century text takes an unashamedly comparative approach and makes extensive use of national and international sources and scholarship.||Type of material:||Review||Publisher:||Round Hall||Journal:||The Irish Jurist||Volume:||53||Start page:||178||End page:||179||Keywords:||Evidence; Criminal trials; Ireland||Other versions:||http://www.irishjurist.com/||Language:||en||Status of Item:||Peer reviewed|
