The Expert Witness Programme is an intensive three day legal training programme comprising of the following core training days: Courtroom Skills, Cross Examination Skills and Excellence in Report Writing.
Excellence in Report Writing allows both new and experienced experts to observe what lawyers and the courts want from an expert witness report. Delegates learn from our skilled lawyers how to assess each others reports and in turn to assess their own. Working from our sample format, delegates will create their own report template pertinent to their profession.
Courtroom Skills Training is an intensive one-day highly practical and experiential course. We examine the theory, practice and procedure of giving evidence. Delegates are cross-examined on a case study which they prepare from their field of expertise. Our experienced trainer will provide constructive feedback to each delegate on their witness box presentation. Delegates receive a comprehensive workbook and aide memoir.
The proven benefits of this advanced legal training day will be reflected in the marked increase in confidence and effectiveness of each individual as an expert witness. Delegates learn how to combat cross-examination techniques and gain mastery of their delivery. Each cross- examination will be video recorded, a copy of which delegates will take for further learning at the end of the course. You must complete a day of Courtroom Skills Training prior to taking this course.
