Our focus on the Young Advocates Series continues with John Hollander's Expert Witnesses in Civil Litigation: A Practical Guide published by Irwin Law. This series of short guidebooks contains useful information for lawyers at any stage of their career. They are available at several of our branches and electronically if you have registered for remote access.
Expert witnesses can be the lifeblood of a lawyer’s case. This handbook applies recent pronouncements of the courts to the involvement of experts in civil litigation. It presents practical tips and techniques for lawyers with respect to the participation of experts from initial retainer, instruction, and report, to preparing experts to testify, leading experts’ evidence at trial, and cross-examination. In each chapter, the handbook uses court cases as examples of the points under discussion.
