Expert evidence can be crucial to a successful outcome of a case. Learning how to work with an expert before and during a trial is a key skill. Join us as we explore when and how to instruct, communicate with, and direct experts throughout the course of a litigation file. We will discuss how to choose and retain the right expert, review their report, prepare the expert for trial, as well as maximize their use for other steps in the litigation process. Examine the common pitfalls to avoid when using an expert, and benefit from our bar and bench panel discussion on effective techniques for examination of an expert.
