Visit website

Despite advancements in many different fields of forensics sciences, its progress presently takes much longer than necessary, making the way in Forensics disappointingly slow. This impacts the efficiency of criminal investigations and causes limited implementation of new advances in Court of Law. The 1st International Caparica Conference in Translational Forensics aims to connect in a transversal way all of us involved in Forensics with the objective of joining together as many forensic disciplines as possible. The idea is to share the latest advances in forensic research and forensic technology as well as to report on their implementation in real cases.


International Congress of Expertise and Expert Evidence
23-24 November 2017, Barcelona

As a partner of this event, the Expert Witness Institute has secured preferential rates to the International Congress of Expertise and Expert Evidence, taking place in Barcelona on 23-24 November 2017. Members of the EWI will be able to attend for 170 €, a 100 € reduction on the general rate of 270 €.

This international congress brings together lawyers, solicitors, judiciary, and law academics from around the world to discuss the latest case law and the changing landscape facing expert witnesses in both civil and common law models. It will also look at more practical issues, such as the legal status of the expert, the difference between experts appointed by parties and those appointed by the Court, and the growing importance of training and accreditation as a means of designating approved experts.

The congress will be a mix of plenary and roundtable discussions, with lots of opportunities for networking, and is an excellent event for any expert that does, or plans to do, expert work outside of the UK.
