Essential knowledge on matters relating to crime, family law, personal injury, and other forms of litigation, is now available free of charge in The Solicitors Group’s Expert Witness Publication.

'Expert Witness Vol. 12' provides unmissable knowledge on the following topics:

Unregulated Psychologists In Family Cases

It should hardly need stating that expert witnesses are required to be experts in their field of speciality, but an expert does not always have to be regulated to be appointed. However, the need to ensure experts in court proceedings are suitably and demonstrably qualified is fundamental to enable the court to make sound and informed judgments.

New Restriction For Some Expert Reports

The duties and requirements imposed on expert witnesses in civil cases are wide-ranging, and now – in some cases – extend to how many pages an expert’s report is permitted. And in a separate development, the court has emphasised the correct approach to so-called expert shopping.

Solicitors, however, need to know that the SRA is intending to start proactively looking for evidence of incompetency and cracking down on it.
