Expert Witnesses play a fundamental role within the UK’s judicial system by providing opinion evidence to assist courts in reaching decisions.
Expert Witnesses may be asked to write a report or statement and be called to give evidence in a wide variety of legal forums including: civil, criminal, and family courts, tribunals, arbitrations, inquiries and professional conduct hearings.
If you have an upcoming case where you are being called to give evidence, and require a course that will familiarise you with the process of giving evidence, lawyers’ techniques in cross-examination and allows you to experience cross-examination in a safe learning environment, then we would advise making use of our reactive Witness Familiarisation Service. For further details please call our office on 020 7549 2549.
