Expert evidence is increasingly prevalent and important in BC civil and criminal proceedings. The substantive law and procedure relating to expert reports have developed significantly in the last few years, raising the threshold for admissibility. As a result, disputes at trial respecting the admissibility and weight of expert evidence are now common.
This course will survey the recent developments in the law and provide in-depth analysis and guidance on the selection and instruction of experts, how to avoid common pitfalls in the preparation of reports, challenging expert reports, and the direct and cross-examination of experts at trial. You will be provided sophisticated and practical instruction from different perspectives on all aspects of expert evidence.
We recommend that you have your copy of Expert Evidence in BC Civil Proceedings – 6th Edition. If you do not have this valuable resource, you may purchase a copy at the same time as you register for the course and SAVE. Please Contact Customer Service to order.
