EXPERT WITNESS ADVICE
The role of the expert witness is to assist the court in the administration of justice, by providing an opinion or factual information based on the expert’s competence in a subject, which is outside the knowledge, skill or experience of most people.
The primary duty of an expert is to the court. The expert owes a secondary duty to the body of knowledge and understanding to which they subscribe. The third duty of the expert is to the party, which has sought their advice. This implies that the expert should not be an advocate for any party.
