Product Description

Myers on Evidence in Child, Domestic and Elder Abuse Cases is designed to assist judges, prosecutors, defense attorneys, investigators, and expert witnesses working with child abuse, domestic violence, rape, stalking, and elder abuse. Investigating and litigating cases of interpersonal violence is difficult.

Knowledge of the rules of evidence and applicable case law is not enough to succeed. In addition to legal expertise, you must possess a thorough grounding in the pertinent medical and psychological literatures. With child and elder abuse, the vulnerability of the victim makes the work emotionally as well as legally taxing. With domestic violence, the tendency of some victims to change their mind about holding the perpetrator accountable frustrates law enforcement and prosecutors.

Myers on Evidence in Child, Domestic and Elder Abuse Cases provides in-depth analysis of the broad range of evidence issues arising in such cases. In addition to detailed textual discussion, the footnotes contain hundreds of cases from federal, military, and state courts. To make footnote cases most useful to busy professionals, the majority of cases are followed by brief descriptions and/or pertinent quotes. This information is included so the reader can assess whether it is worth the time to read the case in its entirety.

It is accurate to say that no other book comes close to the depth of legal analysis and case law on interpersonal violence that you will find in this essential 2-volume text.
