TAE runs a programme of training courses for Expert Witnesses twice a year in Hong Kong, in March and November. Satisfactory attendance at these courses is taken into account when assessing membership applications.
Expert Witnesses in the public and private sector are coming under increasing pressure: clients expect more, the media’s watchful eye finds more to reveal. Newspapers, professional journals and news programmes appear to find the exploits of Experts to be irresistible. Increasingly judicial comment and individual criticism by judges is drawing an unwelcome spotlight onto the Expert.
Our courses are attended by a wide variety of professions from the public and private sectors. The list of the professions we have taught is extensive and has included:
- Environmental Consultants
- Forensic Scientists
- Health Professionals
- Marine Consultants
No matter how varied their occupation, though, they all share the same common goal - they want to improve their knowledge and skill acting as an Expert Witness.
