Exclusionary Rules

MLL334 - Evidence

8 Pages Essays / Projects Year: Pre-2018

Evidence law has a rich and long history which over the years’ has changed; decisions have been made to exclude certain items of information, regardless of their relevance in order to prevent unreliable, potentially misleading evidence from being admitted. In more recent times it has been suggested that the rules designed to exclude such evidence, referred to as exclusionary rules, are excessive with questionable and unclear rationales. Further, suggestions have been made that certain trials do not require a jury, and should be conducted by judges sitting alone. If this were to happen, it has been reasoned that evidence law would no longer be required because judges, as once practicing lawyers and jurists, could be entrusted to rely on only the pieces of information which were both admissible and relevant, and do not need protection or guidance with regard to being exposed to irrelevant or prejudicial information.
