Review of the Role of the Expert Witness in a Court Trial. (A Guide for the Expert Witness.)
This very brief text is intended as a “guide for the expert witness.” Areas covered include preparation of the consultant or witness, fees, credibility, qualifications of an expert, deposition testimony/direct and cross examination and suggestions on being an effective witness. Two appendices deal with demonstrative evidence and a third contains a glossary of legal terms.
