Definition[edit | edit source]
In the law of evidence, a presumption of a particular fact can be made without the aid of proof in some situations.
Overview[edit | edit source]
The invocation of a presumption will normally shift the burden of proof from one party to the opposing party. Presumptions are sometimes categorized into two types: presumptions without basic facts, and presumptions with basic facts.
