The rules of evidence govern how a fact must be proved in a court proceeding. Evidential issues that commonly arise in criminal law matters include hearsay, relevance, expertise and competence.

When the defence and prosecution are in dispute as to whether evidence is admissible in a trial, this may have to be decided in a pre-trial proceeding known as a voir dire.
