The 5 "W's" and the "H" of Domestic Violence Expert Testimony

Event Date
Wednesday, November 15, 2017, 01:00PM

Presenters will sketch the history of domestic violence expert testimony and discuss the following: who is qualified to be a domestic violence expert witness; what topic areas the expert should be able to address; why and when a domestic violence expert should be consulted; where this expert can be important in domestic, civil, and criminal cases; and how “quality control” considerations impact domestic violence expert testimony.

Courts in all 50 states and Washing D.C. have admitted domestic violence expert testimony for the past 20 years, yet there are several factors that are often decided on a case-by-case or court-by-court basis: for example, the foundations for admitting domestic violence expert testimony, the parameters of its use at trial, the qualifications necessary to become an expert, and even the accepted nomenclature for this type of testimony. This webinar addresses these topics and includes best practice considerations and suggestions.
