Legal Evidence Law and Legal Definition

Legal evidence is evidence which is legally admissible. Legal evidence is not confined to the human voice or oral testimony; it includes documentary evidence that is, every tangible object capable of making a truthful statement.

The conditions required by law to make documents legal evidence are that the substance offered as a witness must be proved to have been made or found and preserved in such manner that it states directly, accurately, and truly, a fact relevant and material to the issue.
