Sir Rupert Cross hoped his work would supply “the middle place” for students and practitioners, with theoretical discussion for the former and generous case law for the latter. The New Zealand tenth edition of Cross builds on the foundations set by Sir Rupert, as greatly added to by Dr Donald Mathieson QC over many years. A new team of authors led by the Honourable Justice Mathew Downs, consider fully the Evidence Act 2006 and all material case law. The tenth edition also discusses cognate common law developments, thereby capturing the Act in its broader context.
