Introduction To Expert Witness

The Introduction to Expert Witness provides attendees with an oversight into the requirements, duties and knowledge required as an Expert Witness with a brief review of each stage of case from first instruction through investigation, review, opinion forming to producing a report as evidence in chief and giving oral evidence.The course does not seek to cover these areas in depth as these areas require further study but it introduces the basic standards of evidence using the Civil Procedure Rules Part 35 and Practice Direction 35 as extant in England and Wales.

This introductory course is a first step for anyone with technical expertise and experience who wishes to develop an Expert practice.
