Course Summary

The use of expert evidence in courts has been problematic, leading to a focus on ethical guidelines for witnesses. However, many issues remain and these are explored in this course.

Course Details

The use of expert evidence in courts has been problematic for many years. As a result, there has been a focus on the ethics of witnesses which has given rise to the widespread introduction of rules governing how experts may behave. However, the ethical issues associated with expert evidence are much broader than the ethics of the individual witnesses themselves.

This course examines the issues surrounding expert evidence from the wider viewpoint of a moral philosopher and ethicist. It also offers a critique of some of the ways the legal profession views and uses expert evidence and explains how practices employed by lawyers may be perceived by an outsider. In doing this, the course provides a valuable perspective that members of the legal profession may use to examine their own practices.
