The legal tribunal Expert Course

Delivering better expert witness performance

Training for solicitors and expert witnesses

11th October 2012

We remind all TeCSA members and Adjudicators of the great opportunity to take part in a one day training session we have organised with Arup on 11th October 2012, titled ‘Delivering Better Expert Witness Performance’.  

CLICK HERE for the course flyer and further information.    

This unique one day session brings both expert witnesses and legal professionals together, providing the opportunity for solicitors to learn how to better instruct an expert witness, and to improve experts’ understanding of the requirements of legal professionals giving expert opinion evidence. The event will include interactive sessions with a focus on: 

  • Civil procedure, CPR Part 35, expert meetings and reports
  •  ‘Better’ expert instruction and latest case law
  • Courtroom techniques
  • Common issues including payment, duties absent proceedings, expert combined with remedial design commissions 

This is huge value to all those who use experts in cases and who profess to be competent to give expert opinion evidence to tribunals.

You will also hear about court expectations from our keynote speaker, the Honourable Mr Justice Akenhead, Judge in Charge of the Technology and Construction Court. 

As many of you know the courts are not shrinking violets when it comes to issues with poor expert witnesses.
