An expert witness must be able to articulate their position, be convincing, and deliver an independent opinion that withstands scrutiny under cross examination. The AICPA Expert Witness Skills Workshop offers attendees a safe environment to develop and enhance the skills necessary to be an effective expert witness through practice and critique by industry experts, attorneys, and experienced judges. You will receive case study materials, including expert reports in advance which will be the foundation for the workshop training/preparation.
In three intensive days, you’ll experience a real-life courtroom atmosphere, present to practicing experts and attorneys, and be personally critiqued. You’ll benefit from hands-on training, expert demonstrations and even have the opportunity to testify in a mock trial. This blend of classroom lectures and instant personal feedback will provide the key framework for developing the “real” skills you need to flourish as an expert witness. Be sure not to miss this unique opportunity to learn and network with experts and peers. Take your expert witness skills to a new level.
