Expert Witness 101: NITA's Studio71 March Webcast

So, you need an expert witness to make the facts more understandable as you tell your story? Now what? In today's litigation climate, effective use of experts is essential - which means you will need to choose the right expert(s) for your case, ensure they have what they need to do their job well, and feel confident they will communicate powerfully and effectively with the jury.

In this webcast, Judge Chris Witten and forensic and clinical psychologist Dr. Erin Nelson walk you through the process of engaging and best using an expert witness from flirting with the idea and identifying the best match, to making magic happen together through analysis and practice. Offered from the unique perspective of a trial judge and an expert in psychology, Expert Witness 101 will equip you with practical strategies to smooth the sometimes tumultuous course of attorney-expert relationships.

Learn how to communicate, and get, what you need while optimizing the chance of a “happily ever after” for your client.
