Time: Noon to 1 p.m.

Expert witnesses can make or break a case but effectively qualifying experts–and effectively challenging an expert’s qualifications–is an art that is often overlooked. Properly qualified and reliable experts provide credible, persuasive evidence that can withstand scrutiny. This webinar will explore:

  • considerations for when involvement of an expert in court or ADR proceedings is helpful;
  • use of experts for early neutral evaluation in ADR setting;
  • how to differentiate between genuine expertise and ‘pseudo-experts’; and
  • strategies for evaluating and challenging an expert’s level of expertise during qualifying processes.

Though the principles may pertain to lawyers across a variety of practice areas, this webinar may be of particular interest to family law lawyers.
