EXPERT EVIDENCE IN FAMILY LAW PROCEEDINGS
It is essential that family law lawyers have a firm understanding of the basic principles of expert evidence and assessments, and a familiarity with the jurisprudence in this field.
What is the difference between a participant expert and a litigation expert? What professional obligations are placed on lawyers and experts by Rule 20.1 of the Family Law Rules and when does this apply? Are there different reliability considerations, dependent upon whether the evidence arises in a “hard science” or “soft science” domain? Is the role of an expert different from a professional in a court ordered assessment? How do you challenge an expert whose evidence does not support your case? How has critique evidence been viewed by the courts?
Esteemed law professor, Nick Bala, will address these and other questions. Don’t miss this must-attend program!
