About this course

A one-day report writing course designed to provide expert witnesses who are required to write reports with the necessary knowledge and skills to prepare their reports to best practice standards.

Why Choose This Course

Often reports are written in a format or style that makes them difficult to read so that their impact is lost. Many reports fail to identify and deal with the issues in the case and fail to coherently and credibly provide the witness’ factual evidence.

Excellence in report writing allows both new and experienced expert witnesses to look at what lawyers and the courts want from experts’ reports.

Attendees bring a copy of a report from a completed case in court ready condition and receive feedback from an experienced lawyer trainer and from the other attendees.

Course Syllabus

This one-day legal training course examines the role and duties of an Expert Witness, with reference to the new High Court procedure. It will assist delegates to understand what is required from reports.

You will consider the content of reports by considering the source and weight of evidence to be included and learning to distinguish between facts, inference and opinion. You will also consider the style and format of reports by reference to a model format. The samples and models can be adapted to suit the field and context that is required.

>> We ask attendees to send us a copy of a report from a completed case, in court ready condition, in advance of the course in order to receive relevant feedback from an experienced lawyer trainer and from the other delegates on the day.
