The Court’s Perspective on Expert Witness Testimony
- Berkeley -

San Francisco Superior Court Judge Garrett Wong will lead this day long training to hone your skills related to testifying as an expert witness.  A mock hearing using a fictitious competency case will be held to discuss common mistakes new expert witnesses often make.  In the Berkeley training, highly experienced expert witnesses Dr. Karen Franklin and Dr. Jonathan French and notable attorneys Ira Barg and Kara Chien will play the roles in the mock trial and will offer insights on giving effective testimony on the stand and in the corresponding reports. Judge Wong will round out the day with a judge’s perspective on live testimony and written reports.
