Marie Kaddell, LexisNexis Senior Information Professional Consultant, invites you to join her for the April edition of the Government Info Pro Smart Learning webinar series for government librarians. Join Marie and her featured guest speaker, Betsy Post-Garza, LexisNexis Senior Government Solutions Consultant, for the April 2015 session: Expert Witness Research: A Forgotten Fact is News!
In Following the Equator, published in 1897, Mark Twain observed that “…a forgotten fact is news when it comes again.” In Twain’s time, facts were more easily “forgotten” and then rediscovered. With modern technology and the great information highway, it’s much less likely that facts remain forgotten.
As legal researchers, you have an obligation to make the best use of that technology to discover those forgotten or hidden facts. And when it comes to an expert witness, those forgotten facts can make all the difference. In recent months, multimillion dollar verdicts have been overturned and expert witnesses have been sentenced for perjury—all with what the expert had hoped were “forgotten facts.”
Learn to uncover unflattering facts or successful Daubert challenge strategies using the latest in technological advancements. In an age when falsifying credentials is all too common (1 in 10), legal researchers must not only vet the opposing experts but their own as well.
During our time together, attendees will learn about the resources that will assist you in your due diligence efforts when preparing to face opposing counsel’s experts and avoid surprises when hiring expert witnesses.
Attendees will explore LexisNexis resources and the open web in order to research the six critical steps to thoroughly vet an expert witness.
• Access case history and background
• Identify bias
• Detect testimony inconsistencies
• Uncover gaps in a CV or resume
• View credentials
• Find “golden nuggets”
This session will be presented twice:
- Monday, April 13th, 2:00 PM EST
- Thursday, April 30th, 12:00 PM EST
- Friday, May 1st, 12:00 PM EST
The call in number is: 1-855-733-3266. Attendee access code: 711 620 2745
I look forward to seeing you online for the April 2015 LexisNexis Government Info Pro Smart Learning Webinar: Expert Witness Research: A Forgotten Fact is News!
