The Art of Cross Examination

Cross examination is the examination of a witness in a legal proceeding by the adverse party. It takes place after examination-in-chief: the examination of a witness by the party who calls him. Cross examination is followed by re-examination: the examination of the witness subsequent to the cross examination by the party who called him.

Admission & Its Relevancy u/s 17- 23 & 31 of IEA

Admission, under Indian Evidence Act, 1872 (IEA), is a statement in oral, documentary, or electronic form by a party to the case or his authorised agent or by the other parties the statute permits. The statement must be indicative of some inference relating to the matter in dispute or a related fact. By admission the person agrees that the fact asserted by the other party is true. Admission of fact in court helps in dispensing with the production of evidence during judicial proceedings.
