The latest from Your Witness Issue 83: In the last issue of Your Witness we reported on a High Court decision that gave guidance on the nature of admissible expert evidence. We now investigate a February 2016 Supreme Court judgment that has cast further light on the topic, particularly when the expert evidence to be adduced is of arguably questionable probative value or usurps the function of the court by giving an opinion on a point the court itself should determine. Next, we consider some current EU regulations that apply specifically to expert witnesses - particularly topical given the upcoming referendum. We continue by looking at two recently launched court schemes which are seeking to lessen the time and expense of trials. The emphasis on shortened and truncated procedures is likely to have a far-reaching impact on expert evidence... if, that is, these schemes work as the court intends. Finally, following a spate of Helpline enquiries on the topic, we summarise the court guidance for experts considering withdrawing from civil instructions.
