Litigation success often depends on finding expert witnesses who are able to communicate complex scientific or technical concepts in simple, understandable terms to judges and juries. This introductory class will offer practical techniques and tips to help you identify, select, and develop outstanding experts to support your client's case. Our faculty expert, who has led national expert witness teams in many high-profile cases, will provide strategies on how to find and retain promising experts, practical advice on guiding experts through the preparation of their reports, and helpful tips on ensuring that experts are properly prepared for deposition and trial.

The course will review the applicable requirements for expert reports under the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure and will discuss recent changes to rules governing the discoverability of communications between attorneys and retained experts. For attorneys who are beginning their litigation practice, this course will help you develop your skills on how to approach the retention and development of expert witnesses. This class also is useful to more experienced practitioners who have limited experience working with expert witnesses. Attendees may also be interested in attending the course on Fundamentals of Taking Expert Depositions on August 14 from1 to 4:15 p.m.
