The latest from Your Witness Issue 72: In this issue we start a two-part series on the role of the expert witness in Scotland. The adversarial system used in
Scottish courts is not dissimilar to that employed in the courts of England and Wales but there are differences that
an expert should know about. We also look at access to expert reports by parties who are not party to the litigation
for which the report was prepared. Finally, we report on the latest moves by the Ministry of Justice to cut the amount
it spends on expert witnesses.
