Bookings now welcome for the Expert Witness Institute Annual Conference.

The day celebrates 20 years of the EWI and will welcome over 150 expert witnesses, solicitors, barristers and eminent judges with a programme filled with informative legal updates, vibrant debate and case law analysis. This is our 18th conference and the day is an opportunity to network with fellow experts and the legal community to strengthen your role in the legal sphere and increase your earning potential.


Delegates will be welcomed by Conference Chair Mrs Amanda Stevens. The conference opens with a presentation from EWI President The Rt Hon Lord Kerr who will speak on the ‘The Role of the Expert – The Relationship between Expert and Decision Maker’. The morning also includes an address from EWI’s chair Sir Anthony Hooper and legal updates from the expert world from Dr John Sorabji. Followed by a talk on the ‘Ever-changing face of the legal profession’ by Prof Stephen Mason. Finally, before lunch Carol Ludington and Alan Anderson discuss why we should ‘Eat the Frog First’.


The afternoon includes a series of panel discussions. Panellists include Mike Napier CBE QC LLD (Chair) with James Badenoch QC and David Marshall discussing ‘20 years of impartiality’. Additionally, James Badenoch QC’s talk ‘Informed consent – a momentous change in the law: Montgomery v Lanarkshire Health Board’ gives delegates the opportunity to gain more insight into this landmark case. Philip Mead (Chair); Prof Bill Bowring and Jean Raymond Lemaire make up our international panel. New for this year is the Governors Question Time giving attendees the chance to engage with EWI Governors Miss Kay Linnell; Mr Richard Swan and Mr Christopher Easton on burning issues in the expert world.
