This finding is contained in the 2016 National Annual Expert Witness Survey conducted by Bond Solon in association with The Times newspaper. Over 700 experts completed the survey.

Mark Solon, founder of Bond Solon and chairman of Wilmington Legal, said the concern about juries “could either be due to experts not explaining things properly or clearly enough or because the issue is so complex ordinary citizens can’t be expected to understand".

The experts also report coming under pressure over their impartiality. Find out more about the results.
