Item description for The Law of Evidence in the EUropean Union (Civil Procedure in Europe) by Jose Manuel Lebre de Freitas...
This important book, the fifth in the Civil Procedure in Europe series, provides a comparative overview, of 13 EU countries and Switzerland, on the law of evidence. Each countrys practice in this area is described and analysed by a national expert distinguished in the field of civil procedural law. The contributions are written in either English, French or German, and are followed by summaries in both remaining languages. Bibliographies are included to enable the reader to locate material for further study.
Each national report addresses, among other things, the following issues:
the sources of law and general principles of the law of evidence
the means of evidence
the role of the judge and the parties in the evidence procedure
the evaluation of evidence
the production of evidence
the registration of produced evidence
the possibilities to admit new evidence or to renew evidence in appeal proceedings
A comparative contribution by the editor, Professor Jos Lebre de Freitas, analyses the similarities and differences between the various European systems. Furthermore, the editor discusses attempts to harmonise the law of evidence in Europe and provides concrete suggestions for a future harmonisation or unification of this area of law.
The countries covered are Austria, Belgium, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Ireland, Italy, Luxembourg, The Netherlands, Portugal, Spain, Sweden and Switzerland.
