The Evidence Act 1995 is a statute of the Parliament of New South Wales, which governs the law of evidence in New South Wales. The Act provides the rules for what evidence is admissible in Court proceedings, and how that evidence should be presented and tested.


The Act applies to both Criminal Law and Civil Law proceedings in the state. It is based on the uniform Evidence Acts that were introduced in all Australian jurisdictions in the 1990s, with some modifications to suit the specific needs of New South Wales.


The Evidence Act 1995 sets out the basic principles that govern the admissibility of evidence in court. These principles include the requirement that evidence must be relevant, that it must be reliable, and that it must be obtained fairly. The Act also sets out specific rules for particular types of evidence, such as hearsay evidence, opinion evidence, and evidence obtained by search warrants.


In addition to the admissibility of evidence, the Act also governs the way evidence is presented in court. It sets out the procedures for calling witnesses, cross-examination, and the examination of expert witnesses.


Overall, the Evidence Act 1995 provides a comprehensive framework for the law of evidence in New South Wales and is an important piece of legislation for anyone involved in the legal system in the state of NSW.
