TARGET POPULATION
The Rules of Evidence training programme is targeted at entry level and middle managers, supervisory levels and trade union representatives.

CONTENT
The programme is ‘driven’ by a DVD, narrated by Jack Devnarain and augmented by a PowerPoint presentation.

The DVD, consisting of 16 chapters covers:

  • the principles of natural justice;
  • what is evidence;
  • presumptions;
  • the relevance and reliability of evidence;
  • cautionary rules;
  • hearsay and opinion evidence;
  • direct and circumstantial evidence;
  • character and previous fact evidence;
  • privilege and privileged information;
  • documents as evidence;
  • photographs, video and electronic evidence;
  • real evidence and polygraph evidence;
  • entrapment;
  • evidence from computers; and
  • alco-testing.

In order to make what can be a ‘dry’ subject interesting, case studies based on recent case law are used to illustrate the various subjects.
