This dissertation focuses on the relationship between procedural justice and criminal evidence law. The effect of procedural justice to criminal evidence law is profound: procedural justice is the substantial basis of the legitimacy of criminal evidence law and take the function of realizing the ration, civilization, democracy of criminal evidence law and due judicial cognition of the fact. So procedural justice can legitimatize criminal evidence law and ensure the law accepted by the society. Procedural justice is not the only value of criminal evidence law, because there is a value system of criminal evidence law, which including finding the truth, efficiency and social order besides procedural justice. Nowadays we should regard procedural justice as the core of the value system and reform our criminal evidence law.The main part of this dissertation falls into five chapters:Chapter 1: criminal evidence and criminal evidence lawThis chapter defines criminal evidence and criminal evidence law from the aspect of procedure and take legitimacy as the basic evaluation standard of criminal evidence law.Chapter 2: justice and procedural justiceThis chapter deals with the substantial legitimacy of criminal evidence law. The basic standard of justice can justify all the laws and the procedural justice can legitimatize criminal evidence law.

Recent judicial renovations in France and Russia who has similar law system, ideology and international background with China all took procedural justice as their basic choice and we can draw some lessons from them. Based on the experience of France and Russia, national and international background of China and the functions of procedural justice, we should change our value-ideology of criminal evidence law from the one centered on finding the truth to the one centered on procedural justice and giving proper consideration to other values.
