Law Pod UK latest: Expert Evidence
9 January 2023
In Episode 177 Emma-Louise Fenelon speaks to Margaret Bowron KC about how to avoid disastrous expert evidence. This episode is an update to the popular 2019 episode with Neil Sheldon KC, available here.
Margaret and Emma discuss mistakes in expert reports, the standard to be applied to expert reports, actual and potential conflicts of interest, the importance of staying within one’s area of expertise, and the danger where lawyers get involved in joint experts discussions.
The episode discusses the following cases:
· Radia v Marks  EWHC 145 (QB) here
· Bux v GMC  EWHC 762 here
· Robinson v Liverpool University NHS FT & Dr Mercier here (**UPDATE** Shortly after we recorded this episode, the wasted costs order in this case was overturned by the High Court, see the judgment here)
· Andrews v Kronospan Ltd  EWHC 479 (QB) here
