Expert Witness & Scientific Evidence

This class is a Prerequisite for Advanced Patent Litigation.



This course recognizes that whatever type of lawyering one does (from patent litigation to criminal defense or other civil litigation), one must have an ability to manage effectively expert witnesses and scientific evidence. This course functions as an Advanced Evidence and Advanced Trial Advocacy course. It examines the law as to the admissibility of and limitations on expert testimony and on scientific evidence. It requires students to develop a competence in the use of experts during litigation by participation in simulated direct and cross-examination exercises as well as admissibility exercises.
