Evidence Law is a book that belonged to Lana Skye. The book lists the two rules to be followed when presenting evidence during a trial. Its cover has a yellow chick wearing a deerstalker hat while sitting at a desk and smoking a pipe.

The rulesEdit

Rule 1: No evidence shall be shown without the approval of the Police Department.
Rule 2: Unregistered evidence presented must be relevant to the case in trial.

As far as Phoenix Wright's experiences with these rules go, the only time in which they seemed to actually matter was during the trial of Lana Skye, when he received the book from Lana herself and used it to trap Damon Gant into implicating himself without implicating Lana's younger sister Ema. The first rule especially seems not to have been enforced in any of Wright's other trials, but it is possible that the police department quietly approved Wright's evidence at the time of presenting, as Police Chief Gant technically did during Lana's trial.


  • The chick's deerstalker and pipe are objects strongly associated with stereotypical detectives in general, and Sherlock Holmes in particular.
  • The back cover of the book has another chick on it wearing a mortarboard, holding a stack of books, and welding a pointer of some sort, indicating that it is meant as an educational book. The text underneath the picture reads "© piyo". This indicates that the book may have been created and/or published by a company called "piyo". Indeed, at the end of Rise from the Ashes a book on forensic investigation is briefly shown that seems to be made by the same individuals, with the deerstalker-wearing chick on the cover using a magnifying glass to examine something, with a fingerprinting set beside it.
