Online CPD Module
Presentation time: 90 minutes
Many practitioners rarely have the opportunity to discuss issues relating to the engagement of experts and the conduct of examination, cross-examination, re-examination and hot-tubbing. This seminar will help practitioners and experts make expert evidence as effective as possible.
This ground-breaking seminar will use live extract footage from the Canterbury Earthquakes Royal Commission to show you New Zealand’s leading practitioners questioning expert witnesses, and how significant the contribution of expert evidence was to the findings.
Please contact us if you use a dial up internet connection.
You will be more confidently able to identify your witness, prepare them for court, and deal with an expert in court.

Note to Readers:
Although I am named as the author of this book you will note that none of it appears to have actually been written by me. The introduction is attributed to Dr J Antonius Gill, who purports to be a partner in a London law firm, the conclusion is said to be the work of a dubious law professor and between the two you will find seven “Dialogues” between Socrates and various lawyers in New Zealand.
For the avoidance of doubt there is no J Antonius Gill, the law professor is made up and Socrates has not, as far as I know, been to New Zealand.
I have written the book in this way in an attempt to deal with the subject of expert evidence in a different and hopefully engaging way. I therefore invite you to ignore Dr Gill's unkind words and hope that you will find the book both interesting and useful.
