Abstract

This paper examines developments in the rules and procedures relating to adducing expert evidence in court proceedings. In so doing, the paper examines legislative requirements, what constitutes a person as an expert, how to determine who to appoint as an expert as well as considering the factors that are relevant to preparation of the brief to the expert. Finally, the impact of increasing judicial oversight in the giving of expert evidence, including hot tubbing and conclaving of experts, is considered.
