Expert witnesses play a fundamental role within the judicial system by providing opinion evidence to assist courts in reaching decisions. As well as having the relevant qualifications and experience in your professional field, it’s now regarded as essential to undertake recognised Expert Witness Training.

Recognised Expert Witness training
Bond Solon is the UK’s leading provider of expert witness training, CPD and Certification. We provide training covering the core areas of expert witness work.
Individual experts can attend our public courses (currently delivered virtually) or we can arrange closed courses (either virtually or face-to-face) if you have a group of colleagues who wish to attend training together.
