As part of the on-going lecture programme run for the education of experts by the Expert Witness Institute, Dr Thomas Walford will be lecturing on how to conduct and manage the court ordered experts’ meetings and the preparation of the Joint Statement. This is a important part of the expert’s duties in the legal process. The conduct at an experts’ meeting can be highly material to how the relevant arguements are presented to the court and the joint statement should become probably the most useful input to the judge.
