Re[2]: Forensic Engineering Technical Group meeting

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Considering the presenters are lawyers, can I safely assume that there will 
be no "record" of their presentation, such as handouts or video's for those 
of us that care to obtain such.

TOPIC:          "Documentation and Depositions: The Expert's Achilles Heel"

Our speakers this month are with a law firm that has specialized in national 
and international construction, surety and government contract law.  Their 
work consists of preparing, prosecuting, and defending major construction 
claims.  Through this work, they have developed an understanding of the role 
of experts in the construction dispute resolution process.

Their presentation will focus on forensic expert preparation, and 
particularly, expert depositions.  They will discuss both the obvious and not- 
so-obvious "do's and don'ts" of expert testimony in deposition.  They also 
plan to present several anecdotal examples of the strengths and weaknesses 
that experts typically exhibit.
