Brief Abstract: Are you new to the area of giving expert testimony or do you just need to update your skills? If either is the case you should attend the Expert Witness Workshop. The first half of the workshop will begin with a panel discussion of experienced expert witnesses and lawyers who will introduce broad and important topics such as the Canadian legal tests for expert evidence (R v. Mohan, R v. J-JL), CVs, preparation for giving testimony, appropriate language for your evidence and more. This will be followed with small discussion/practice groups. Each of these small break out groups will be facilitated by an experienced practitioner and will allow you to further explore and practice some of the skills that were introduced by the panel.
