EXPERT REPORTING

Our April event looks at the legal and technical sides of report writing …

The Right Evidence - Suzanne Kirton, Barrister


     Suzanne is a barrister with over 15 years experience in technical disputes.  She appears regularly in the VCAT and the higher courts.  Over the years she has seen expert reports ranging from outstanding to unsalvageable.  The right report can make or break a case. Get it wrong, and your report is likely to be inadmissible, or given no weight, and may be contrary to your ethical obligations.

Suzanne will explain the obligations of the Court and Tribunal Rules and of common law. She will give you tips to ensure your evidence is relevant, persuasive and of service to the tribunal and your clients.

ALSO on the same night-
