Leading legal experts present on what you need to know and what you need to do when appointed as an Expert Witness.

This event will provide members with a thorough overview of what is required once appointed as an Expert Witness and what is required of you to ensure you conduct yourself in an appropriate way; including your obligations to the Court, report writing, communicating with your instructors and others, responding to post-report queries, participating in conciliation conferences and tips for cross-examination.

Attendance at this event would be of benefit to members and non-members looking for a better understating of the processes and perspectives of the courts and what is required of a valuer who is appointed as an expert witness in a legal dispute. The session will provide a useful refresher for valuers who have experience giving expert evidence, and will also benefit those who are new to the role of an expert witness.
