Carolina Law is offering a two-day workshop for 10 professors and scholars who would like to be trained for future opportunities to serve in court as an expert witness. The workshop operates in conjunction with the Expert Witness Practicum which is part of the law school’s Trial Advocacy curriculum.
Participants will leave the workshop knowing:
how the courts decide who to qualify as an expert witness
the difference between consulting and testifying
the process of selection and preparation that attorneys use
the full meaning of attorney-client privilege
the expectations regarding report-writing, depositions, trials and a brief overview of discovery
During the workshop, participants will be prepared for testimony by Carolina Law students. Each expert will get to experience direct and cross examination in the UNC School of Law’s court room with live feedback from an experienced trial lawyer.
Participants will receive a certificate upon completion and be listed in the School of Law’s forthcoming expert witness database, which will help attorneys find subject matter experts.
