Selecting and Working With Expert Witnesses *Class by Webinar*

August 13, 2020
Credits: 3.0 Credit Hours
Description: Litigation success often depends on finding expert witnesses who can communicate complex scientific or technical concepts in simple, understandable terms to judges and juries. This informative introductory class will offer practical techniques and tips to help those who attend identify, select, and develop outstanding experts to support your client’s case.
Our faculty expert, who has led national expert witness teams in many high-profile cases, will provide strategies on how to find and retain promising experts, practical advice on guiding experts through the preparation of their reports, and helpful tips on ensuring that experts are properly prepared for deposition and trial.  He will review the applicable requirements for expert reports under the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure and will discuss the rules governing the discoverability of communications between attorneys and retained experts.
This class will help those attorneys who are beginning their litigation practice, develop their skills on how to approach the retention and development of expert witnesses.  This class also is useful to more experienced practitioners who have limited experience working with expert witnesses.
