Full Definition of Opinion Evidence


The Evidence of a Witness should normally be first-hand and of events directly related to the case at issue. The opinion of a witness is likely to be Hearsay, if not irrelevant. An exception is the evidence of specialists in particular fields. The opinion of such a specialist may be acceptable if it is likely to be something that the court could not directly establish itself.
