How well does the concept of a Single Joint Expert perform?
With the reduction in Legal Aid, Judges are increasingly requiring the use of a Single Joint Expert to limit the costs of a case.
A considerable number of enquiries received by the EWI’s Helpline concern problems experienced by members who have been instructed as Single Joint Experts.
What can we learn from the experience of others? Our speaker will identify common problems encountered by the Single Joint Expert and indicate the lessons to be learned. This is an opportunity not to be missed to recount your own experiences and learn valuable lessons from other experts’ experiences.
