The latest from Your Witness Issue 82: The relentless erosion of legal aid in England and Wales over the last two decades has resulted in a significant growth in alternative methods of funding for parties to litigation. The range of funding options on offer can be somewhat bewildering – not only for litigants, but for lawyers and other professionals too. Following a number of related queries from experts to our Register Helpline, in this issue we offer you a brief guide to what’s on offer. The exercise of the court’s wide powers to control the number of expert witnesses instructed in a case often gives rise to procedural challenges. Here we consider a recent Court of Appeal judgment when it heard a case against a refusal to permit expert evidence. We also review the compellability of expert witnesses. In theory, the law makes no distinction between witnesses of fact and expert witnesses, but in practice the courts exercise discretion in deciding whether an expert witness should be compelled to appear. And we revisit the question of experts keeping papers from old cases – what should you keep and for how long? And finally, how can a judge be compared with Goldilocks from the tale of the three bears? We strangle this particular simile to draw out the lessons from some recent judicial guidance on what constitutes a good expert report.
