Expert witnesses are individuals who are recognised as authorities in their field and are called upon to provide their specialised knowledge and expertise in legal proceedings. They are typically called upon in court cases to provide opinions, analysis, and conclusions based on their expertise in a particular subject matter. Expert witnesses can be from a wide range of fields, including medicine, engineering, finance, computer science, and many others. They may be hired by either the prosecution or the defence in a case, or by the court itself to provide an objective assessment of the facts at hand.
Expert witnesses are required to have extensive experience and training in their field, as well as the ability to effectively communicate complex technical information to non-technical audiences. They may be required to prepare reports, provide testimony in depositions or trials, and participate in other aspects of the legal process. Expert witnesses play an important role in helping judges and juries make informed decisions in complex legal cases. Their testimony can provide critical insight into the technical, scientific, or other specialised aspects of a case, and can help ensure that the court reaches a just and equitable outcome. In England and Wales, expert witnesses are bound by a code of conduct that requires them to be impartial and objective, and to provide their evidence to the court in a clear and concise manner. This helps to ensure that the court receives the most accurate and reliable evidence possible, and that justice is served in civil law cases.
