Written by a trial lawyer turned professor, Law for the Expert Witness, Second Edition is for professionals who participate - voluntarily or involuntarily - in the legal system as expert witnesses. This book discusses the practical aspects of pre-trial discovery and the Rules of Evidence. Most of the principles are illustrated using actual cases decided by various courts. The book also includes helpful hints based on the author's trial experience and appendices that contain the texts of the relevant Federal Rules of Civil Procedure and Federal Rules of Evidence. This text is an excellent primer for chemists, medical professionals, civil engineers, environmental toxicologists, and other professionals called to provide expert testimony, as well as a practical handbook for lawyers to utilize in preparing experts for testifying.
