This web class will cover what appraisers and assessors need to know about giving evidence in litigation concerning valuation disputes.

The web class will cover the “ins and outs” of preparing for litigation including how the expert witness and the advocate should work together as a team; the rules governing the use of experts; the preparation of the expert’s report; what facts to be include and how they can be proved; and, critically, how to link the facts to the opinion of value. It will also cover discussions between the expert witness and the legal team; dealing with the strengths and weaknesses in both side’s valuations; how to present expert evidence; how to deal with cross-examination; and other matters to take into account in connection with litigation. Participants will be provided with up to date information about the law and practice of giving expert evidence and helpful advice on how the task should be approached.

Instructors:  Paul Sanderson and Peter M. Smith
