Procedures From Secondary Evidence Section

In the law, there are many types of evidence. The most common evidence is direct evidence. This is when someone says something happened, and then other people testify about what they saw or experienced. For example, if your neighbor says he saw you commit a crime, that would be direct evidence against you because it’s coming from someone who has seen your actions firsthand. However, there are some types of cases where direct evidence isn’t possible or practical for instance, if your neighbor was asleep at the time you committed the crime and never saw anything happen at all! In these situations, we can use “secondary evidence” instead.

What is Secondary Evidence Section

The secondary evidence section is a type of evidence that comes from another source, rather than directly from the witness. For example, if you were going to court and wanted to prove that your neighbor murdered his wife and buried her body in his backyard, you would need primary (direct) evidence in order to do so. You could not just say “he did it!” but instead would have to provide some kind of proof for your claims. You might show up at court with photographs of your neighbor’s home showing blood stains on the ground outside or pictures taken inside showing signs of a struggle between two people who look like they could be him and his wife (primary). Alternatively, if you do not have access to these kinds of photographs or perhaps even if you do you may still be able to convince the jury by providing them with secondary sources: newspaper articles about other murders similar in nature; police reports about similar cases being solved recently through DNA testing; expert testimony about what kinds of substances leave behind such stains on surfaces etc…

Legal Definition of Secondary Evidence

In order to understand what secondary evidence is, it’s important to first define what direct evidence is. Direct evidence is the testimony given by a witness who saw the event or physical evidence of an event (such as photos). Secondary evidence is not directly related to the event in question and may include:

  • Testimony from someone who heard about it from someone else;
  • Testimony from multiple people talking about their own experiences; and
  • Newspaper articles or other types of media reports on similar events happening elsewhere

Examples of Secondary Evidence Section

Secondary evidence is any piece of information that can be used to support your case. For example, if you’re in a car accident and the other driver doesn’t know who hit them, but they do remember seeing a blue car drive away from the scene of impact, then this would be considered secondary evidence. Other examples include police reports and witness accounts (if they are available). Expert opinions may also qualify as secondary evidence when they have been published in journals or books by experts in their field.

Methods for Collecting Secondary Evidence

There are a number of ways to collect secondary evidence. These include:

  • interviewing witnesses
  • reviewing documents (e.g., contracts, policy manuals)
  • reviewing records (e.g., meeting minutes)
  • reviewing surveillance footage or video recordings
  • reviewing audio recordings (e.g., phone calls)

You may also want to consider collecting secondary evidence from social media posts if it is relevant to your case, but be aware that this can be difficult because many users delete their posts after they’ve been posted online for some time and because some posts are protected by privacy settings that make them inaccessible unless you’re logged in as the user who wrote them or someone with access permissions granted by said user.

There are Various Ways To Collect This Type of Secondary Evidence

There are various ways to collect this type of evidence. For example, you could: 

  • Read police reports and witness statements to find out what happened at the scene of the crime.
  • Look through documents and records related to your case, such as medical files or court transcripts from previous trials involving similar incidents.
  • Browse through records of proceedings (e.g., criminal court proceedings) in order to find out if there were any earlier cases involving similar incidents that may have led up to yours or influenced its outcome later on


The secondary evidence section is a powerful tool. It can be used to help you prove your case, but it’s also important to know how much weight the court will give it. The best way to find out if secondary evidence could help your case is by talking with an attorney who specializes in this area of law.
