Expert Witness/Presenting Planning Evidence

Facilitated by Dave Serjeant

This seminar is designed to be a practical guide to preparing and presenting evidence at the Environment Court. It will address what it means to be an expert witness, primarily focusing on planning experts however the seminar is of value to all expert witnesses.

It will include commentary on practices designed to assist the Court to determine technical issues where experts offer conflicting opinions. This will include the fairly standard practice of requiring technical witnesses to attend expert conferencing and produce an agreed statement of facts and/or joint statements of evidence.

The seminar also provides guidance on how to conduct one’s self under cross-examination.

The facilitators are joined by a senior RMA lawyer and a Judge of the environment Court for the Presentation, providing insights on what is expected from the expert witness form their perspective.
