Being an Expert Witness: What to expect and how to prepare – Part 2
In today’s litigious atmosphere, professionals are often asked to be expert witnesses in civil suits or to simply provide services for mediations, arbitrations, and forensic investigations. While this can be a nerve-wracking experience, there are various techniques you can employ to become an effective expert witness.
Join Stormwater University for this live, educational, two-part webinar as prolific speaker Dr. David T. Williams helps you understand what to expect when asked to participate in legal processes, how to prepare, and how to minimize your organization’s exposure to possible legal actions.
Most expert witness courses are taught by attorneys. Instead, Dr. Williams brings to the table practical, industry-related experience as an expert witness in more than 50 court and forensic actions. He will leverage the acumen he has gained to impart proper behavior to adhere to throughout the process, including ethical conduct, how to handle oneself under pressure, and the role of the expert witness as a non-advocate and servant of the court.
This course will enable you to represent yourself as a competent and knowledgeable expert witness who is in control, credible, and—most of all—unbiased.
