Trials and tribulations – top tips for expert witnesses

Trial experience is invaluable, but can be hard to come by.

Our interactive seminar will provide expert witnesses with the opportunity to gain real insight into the trial process, and give them guidance on factors that can influence a judge’s decision.

The seminar will also look at the broader role of expert witnesses, including the art of preparing joint statements as well as what solicitors and barristers want from them.
