<p><strong>Thomas Starkie</strong> (1782-1849) was an English barrister called to the bar at Lincoln's Inn. He studied under Joseph Chitty (1775-1841) and later served as the Downing Professor of Law at Cambridge. He also served on a royal commission aimed at codifying English criminal law. Starkie's <em>Treatise of the Law of Evidence</em> (1824) was written as a resource for practitioners engaged in litigation. It discusses the policy behind rules of evidence and the boundaries of admissibility they create, covering foundational principles, instruments, and application.</p>
