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. 13' provides unmissable knowledge on the following topics:

Lessons From the Courts For Litigants And Experts

A notable ruling underlines how important it is for experts to understand the limits of their experience and expertise for the purposes of providing expert evidence. A separate ruling illustrates the costs implications for litigants who fail to cooperate with the court’s expectations in relation to the selection and appointment of expert witnesses.

Experts And Instructing Lawyers: An Important Relationship

Expert witnesses and instructing solicitors should strive for good communication between them from the start; and a relationship grounded on trust. Among many benefits, it enables experts to feel able to raise concerns about their own abilities.

Accounts Rules Changes… Or Not?

The streamlined version of the SRA Accounts Rules came into effect in 2019, and the regulator consulted last year on introducing minor but important amendments to the rules. The regulator’s aim has been to give clarification (it says many law firms have found part of the wording unclear) and to reduce the burden on firms.

SRA Competence: How Have You ‘Reflected’?

Solicitors are urged to avoid the temptation to consider the competence statement requirement in their annual practising certificate renewal as a mere ‘tick box’ exercise.

Unoccupied Property Insurance: A Year-Round Risk For Probate Properties

The unseasonal windy and wet weather that has gripped the UK in recent weeks has caused flooding and the almost inevitable water damage to some properties. It’s a timely reminder for probate practitioners and their clients to ensure any properties standing empty are regularly checked, particularly in stormy weather – even when summer is just around the corner.
