Your guide to finding, choosing, and using an expert

This publication is essential for: all civil litigators who work with expert witnesses.

Expert Evidence in BC Civil Proceedings will help you handle BC's distinctive expert evidence rules. Practical and portable, this softcover guidebook provides discussion, tactics, and tools so you can effectively choose, brief, call, and attack expert witnesses.

  • identify when and how to use experts
