Expert Witnesses: How to Prepare, Present and Cross-examine Them
Focusing on the civil side, Bill Scrantom (LL.B.’55) told students to instruct their experts not to try “to sell” the case to the jury. “It’s not their job,” he said. While Don Samuel (J.D.’80), who spoke regarding criminal trials, said a decision to call an expert should be “based upon whether you should put up any defense at all.”
