The formal structure of proof -- Proving the law -- Proof in interpretation -- Understanding indeterminacy -- Building the imperfect evidence set -- Stipulating the law -- Selecting standards of proof
"As Gary Lawson shows, legal claims are inherently objects of proof, and whether or not the law acknowledges the point openly, proof of legal claims is just a special case of the more general norms governing proof of any claim. As a result, similar principles of evidentiary admissibility, standards of proof, and burdens of proof operate, and must operate, in the background of claims about the law. This book brings these evidentiary principles for proving law out of the shadows so that they can be analyzed, clarified, and discussed."--Amazon website
