Legal expert witness telecommunications can be complex for even the most seasoned expert. There are many legal strategies that expert witnesses should know about to communicate with clients, colleagues, and attorneys effectively.
What should I know about this?
One important strategy is to be aware of the rules of evidence. Rules of evidence are laws that dictate what can and cannot be admitted as evidence in court. There are many different types of rules of evidence, but some common ones include the hearsay rule and the best evidence rule.
Another strategy is to understand privilege law. Privilege law is a set of laws that protect certain communications from being used in court. For example, the attorney-client privilege protects confidential communications between an attorney and their client from being used in court.
Finally, expert witnesses should always know the applicable state and federal wiretapping statutes.
