Authenticate

To prove that evidence is genuine and therefore admissible. Authenticated evidence generally is admissible because either:

  • There is prima facie ( www.practicallaw.com/2-518-8779) evidence to show that the proffered evidence is what its proponent claims it is.

  • It is self-authenticating (authentic on its face) and therefore needs no further proof to be admitted as evidence.
