Your civil litigation practice is busy. But to ensure ongoing quality advocacy for your clients, you still need to step back once in a while and look at the big picture. Here's a perfect opportunity. Catch up on what you need to know about expert evidence. Our presenters examine many important appellate decisions—like Bruff-Murphy v Gunawardena, Saadati v Moorhead and R v McManus—as well as the question of the trial judge's gatekeeper role, and more.

  • Consider the implications of a trial judge admitting expert opinion evidence of a witness who was also an investigating officer
  • Contemplate cross-border differences in admissibility
  • Hear from expert witnesses about their experience and insight
