Jennifer Jones will participate in EWI’s (Expert Witness Institute) Annual Conference 2020: Bridging the gap. This online conference will bring together expert witnesses, solicitors, barristers and eminent judges to discuss the key issues facing the expert community.
Jennifer will join a panel to discuss ‘Lawyers and Experts: bringing together Experts and Instructing Parties without compromising independence’. This session will use a case study to view the process of instruction from the point of view of all parties and tease out the issues of working together and how this can be resolved. The panel will be led by Dr Penny Cooper.
This conference is aimed at:
- Experienced Experts looking to develop their practice
- New Experts looking to develop their understanding
- Those who work with or instruct Experts
What skills will Experts need in the future? How has the Covid-19 pandemic shaped the role of technology in the Courts and how might this effect practice in the long-term? How can we bring together Experts and Instructing Parties without compromising independence? How is Brexit likely to affect Expert Witnesses? How can we improve practice in Arbitration and the Coroner’s Court? This year’s conference will aim to answer these questions and many more.
