Related Sector: Expert Witness
There is very little information for experts on attending conferences with counsel. Mark Solon have written a free practical guide to help expert witnesses understand the purpose of a conference with counsel.
A conference simply means a meeting with the barrister who has been instructed by a solicitor to advise on or be the advocate in a case. There may be two barristers if the case warrants this, a QC who will advocate at the hearing and a Junior Counsel or just a Junior Counsel. The solicitor conducting the case will be there and sometimes assistants and trainees. The meeting is sometimes called a “Con.” Sometimes a conference will be by phone or conducted remotely by one of the many links available now.
