What to Expect When You're an Expert: Admissibility of Expert Testimony is the first in a series
of whitepapers and presents strategies on how to conduct your expert witness business with an eye toward the rules on admissibility of expert
testimony throughout the litigation process. This resource has broad application for all experts – regardless of discipline. It sheds light
on how to avoid admissibility challenges and outlines ways to deal with them effectively when they happen. Written by Wendy N. Pearson of
Pearson Research Group. Prepared and distributed by IMS ExpertServices.
You may be the expert in your field, but if you fail to understand how the rules on admissibility of expert testimony may affect your opinions
and testimony, you jeopardize your role as an expert. If the court excludes your testimony, all your hard work is for naught and you lose your
opportunity to be the expert in front of the jury.
This series presents strategies on how to conduct business with an eye toward the rules on the admissibility of expert testimony (Rule 702
of Federal Rules of Evidence; Daubert, Frye, or state variations) throughout the litigation process. The information contained in these chapters
has broad application to all experts – regardless of discipline – because all experts should keep Rule 702 and Daubert principles (or the applicable
equivalent in the governing jurisdiction) in mind when considering retention for a case and when actually working on a case.
