The Examination of Expert Witnesses – Milan

The Milan Chamber of Arbitration (CAM) is hosting IAA on the 30th November for a three-day course on the examination of expert witnesses. This training is tailored to civil code arbitration practitioners and will examine common law methods of presenting expert evidence. Led by a team of IAA’s experienced barristers and silks, including Colin Edelman QC and Derek Wood CBE QC, the course will explore direct examination, cross-examination and re-examination.

Together with our Sponsors, we have created the mock arbitration of Moscotels Inc v Jack & Renée Fisher. In this case, poor handling of expert witnesses has resulted in the last-minute instruction of new legal teams. The trainees will represent either the Claimant or the Respondents. The new teams are briefed with improving the performance of the external accounting experts in the short time remaining before the evidential hearing.

Trainees will learn the techniques necessary for getting the most out of expert witnesses. These common law techniques can often make or break a case and are therefore vital training points for any legal practitioner.


This course is now full, however if you would like IAA to provide similar training on your behalf, please contact us.
