Evidence rule is the core of civil procedure. The article probes into the ascertainment rules on the witness testimony and expert conclusion in detail. Then through further analyses it holds the view that, compared to 'subjective truth' and 'objective truth', the proof demand of 'legal truth' has its positive values; on the other hand, in the guise of 'discretion' and 'free proof', the cases that the people are cruelly oppressed probably take place due to the subjective and groundless conclusion, which will affect the dignity of the law and destroy the unity of legal system. The article correspondingly suggests that the ascertainment of the witness testimony and expert conclusion evidence, along with a judge's discretion in the course of the evidence ascertainment, should be improved.
