He also served on a royal commission aimed at codifying English criminal law. Starkie's Treatise of the Law of Evidence (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.
