Law of Procedures & Evidence
The South African law of evidence forms part of the adjectival or procedural law of that country. It is based on English common law.
There is no all-embracing statute governing the South African law of aspects: Various statutes govern various aspects of it, but the common law is the main source. The Constitution also features prominently.
All types of legal procedure look to the law of evidence to govern which facts they may receive, and how: civil and criminal trials, inquests, extraditions, commissions of inquiry, etc.
