The role of the expert witness
An expert witness is someone with the appropriate experience and qualifications to allow them to give their opinion on matters which are the subject of litigation and which are within their specialist area. When they are giving evidence to the court, either in the form of a report or verbally, they are independent of both parties and have a duty to the court. Their role is to help the court to understand the specialist matters involved.
