Just when you thought it was safe to go back to court….the expert evidence landscape has changed (again)
Greenway Chambers
We have woken up to a world where uncontroverted expert evidence  - that’s right, no cross-examination - can be criticised in submissions and then rejected (Griffiths v TU UK Limited), where an expert’s years of industry experience are not enough to overcome the lack of an academic qualification (Fonterra v Bega), and where an expert who strayed from the path of independence …..well, no surprises here (Dwyer v Volkswagen).  Expert evidence: it’s never dull. Join us for Julie and Tony’s annual rundown of the highs, the lows and the “what’s next”.
