Gone are the days when a weapon at a crime scene was considered as the most important evidence in settling a case. The power vested in a piece of evidence to prove or disprove if the accused is guilty or not, is what makes it important for lawyers and the general public to be aware of its nature. Many lawyers agree that 'finding proof' is a challenging task. It is also extremely important to know what serves as evidence and how the evidence is presented and examined in the Court.
