Event Type

Giving expert witness is hosted and presented by Karen Brain of Matrix Insurance, a long standing friend of and adviser to the Institute. She presents regularly on wide range of topics directly relevant to marine surveyors.

The key function of an expert witness is to express an independent expert opinion based on the information that is provided – and it pays well. An expert witness could be engaged to give evidence at arbitrations, tribunals, and litigation. An expert witness is a person giving sworn evidence to a tribunal or court of law.

An expert witness can be anyone with knowledge or experience of a particular field or discipline beyond that to be expected of a layman. The expert witness’s duty is to give to the Court or tribunal an impartial opinion on particular aspects of matters within his expertise which are in dispute.

Karen will give examples of the special report formats that an expert witness will be expected to provide and will give a detailed synopsis of what being an expert witness entails and will highlight the pitfalls to avoid!
