Whether or not you plan to get into expert witnessing, this is a very interesting look at how things work in the courtroom. The author gives examples of cases he has worked on, courtroom standards by which an expert (and his analysis) is measured, and how to communicate effectively with a jury. I thought it was a little heavy on the civil side compared to the criminal side of cases, considering that 99% of the people using the text are testifying in criminal court (IAI members testing for Module 4 Crime Scene Certification Board).

Whether or not you plan to get into expert witnessing, this is a very interesting look at how things work in the courtroom. The author gives examples of cases he has worked on, courtroom standards by which an expert (and his analysis) is measured, and how to communicate effectively with a jury. He gives examples of how experts succeed and how they can can fail, and shows the methods opposing attorneys often use to discredit your testimony. You can learn a lot about why recent high profile suits and criminal cases turned out in the curious way they did. Real eye opener. Highly recommended book. Couldn't put it down.

Good book for reviewing the landmark court rulings and providing the legal perspective of how experts function in court. I thought it was a little heavy on the civil side compared to the criminal side of cases, considering that 99% of the people using the text are testifying in criminal court (IAI members testing for Module 4 Crime Scene Certification Board). Overall, I found it to be a useful book to add to the library as a quick reference for landmark cases and appreciated the differentiation of some of the fine nuances involved in the civil litigation side for those criminal forensic matter experts that occasionally find themselves involved in some sort of civil trial after the criminal issues have been resolved. The chapters were well organized and written, with the attempt to make a somewhat dry topic interesting to the reader, and propel the reader to continue on with their reading and digesting the material. A useful text in an area were there is not a lot of "short" texts available that the average reader will spend the time to read and learn the materials.
