Praise for McWilliams' Canadian Criminal Evidence, Fifth Edition

"This edition marks the completion of the authors' Herculean effort to fully update and rewrite Peter McWilliams' classic text on criminal evidence. Their work is scholarly in the best sense of the word. The reader will find clear answers when it is possible to give them. But more importantly, as a result of rigorous analysis of the cases and texts and generous use of comparative material, the reader will also find the resources to solve new problems through the application of sound principle and analysis."
From the Foreword by The Honourable Mr. Justice Thomas A. Cromwell
Supreme Court of Canada
