Why is the EWI such a strong and successful not-for-profit membership body for experts? 

Here are some of the benefits of EWI membership: 

pert Referral Service:
 One of the primary functions of the  EWI is to source expert witness work for our fully vetted EWI members. Through appearing on our website as well as our member database your name and contact details will be frequently provided to solicitors seeking experts with your specialism.

EWI LogoEWI members (excluding Provisional Members) are entitled to use the designated logo to indicate that they have met the technical, legal and quality standards for criteria for EWI membership. Likewise full members are entitled to use the EWI acronyms after their name along with their other suffixes, eg: MEWI (Member of EWI), FEWI (Fellow of EWI)

Representation: The EWI make representations, on behalf of experts, to the Government and to affiliated professional bodies and associations wherever appropriate.

There is also the option for members to advertise their services on the EWI website. The EWI website’s hit rate continues to grow and many visitors to the site are solicitors looking to instruct experts. All   members receive a basic listing but for an extra £50 you can have a full enhanced listing including CV and photograph.

Training and Education: There is an important role for the EWI to play in ensuring that the experts, who are recognised by the court under the new rules, are competent and fully cognisant of their responsibilities. The EWI runs courses and seminars throughout the year on topical issues. Joint conferences with other leading organisations are held regularly. Members enjoy discounts to all events. All courses are CPD/CPE registered.

25% discount at the English National Opera (selected shows only) The Pirates of Penzance, Carmen and The Queen of Spades. Members should contact the EWI to get the promo code.
