Expert Witnesses (JD-541)
This course focuses on the theory and practice of presenting and confronting an expert witness. Students learn to recognize the need for an expert and how to handle and present that expert from the initial report stage through trial, and how to defend against an expert from the discovery stage through trial. This class begins with an examination of applicable laws, from Frye to Daubert, and then translates the law into practical training on how to present, and defend, a Daubert challenge. Students participate in a mock deposition and trial sessions. Students examine ethical issues prevalent when dealing with experts.
