How to apply
We encourage member experts to check that their potential referees are willing to act as such before proposing them.
- complete the On-line Re-vetting Form...
- download, complete and return our standard printed Re-vetting Form.
Using the details you supply, we approach up to five referees on your behalf. They will each be asked to make a general recommendation as to your abilities as an expert witness in a number of categories, including:
- SJE work
- criminal work
- civil work
- report writing
- courtroom skills
How we handle responses
It is up to the referee to decide the aspects of your work on which he or she is able to comment.
- We will log the dates of positive references against your name. The most recent successful vetting date for each work category
will be displayed next to your entry on line.
- We will make up to two approaches to each referee. If the referee does not reply, we will void that reference and take no further action.
Frequency of re-vetting
Members may apply for re-vetting as frequently, or infrequently, as they like. Members must decide for themselves the importance
they believe instructing lawyers will place on the published dates.
