As attorneys present their case to a judge or jury, they rely on evidence to help paint a picture of their argument and illustrate facts in their case. To do this, they must use evidence which is deemed “admissible.” In order to be considered ‘admissible’ evidence must meet certain criteria.
In a court of law, the term ‘admissible evidence’ refers to any testimonial, documentary, or tangible evidence that is presented to a judge or jury to display or communicate the facts of an argument. Admissible evidence must be relevant and reliable.
