Cross-Examination Day - overview
The Cross-Examination Day is a follow-on course to the Courtroom Skills Training. The day involves intensive crossexamination experience which enables experts to refine and enhance their evidence giving performance, and gain mastery of their presentation.
Each expert is cross-examined on one of their own reports, once in the morning and once in the afternoon. The second cross-examination is recorded. If undertaking the University of Aberdeen Bond Solon Expert Witness Certificate then this will be submitted for assessment; experts not working toward the qualification can keep their recording.
