Using the details you supply, we approach up to five referees on your behalf. They will each
be asked to make a general recommendation as to your abilities as an expert witness in a number of categories, including:
- SJE work
- criminal work
- civil work
- report writing
- courtroom skills
It is up to the referee to decide the aspects of your work on which he or she is able to comment. We will log the
dates of positive references against your entry on our database. The most recent successful vetting date for each
category will be displayed next to your entry on the website, thereby giving lawyers information on
how recently you have been recommended by one of their colleagues in the various aspects of expert witness
Many experts prefer to check that their potential referees are willing to act as such before proposing names. We would
encourage you to adopt this approach.
Note that we undertake to make two approaches to each referee. If the referee does not reply, we will void that reference and take no further action.
Frequency of re-vetting
Please note that you may apply for re-vetting as
frequently, or infrequently, as you like. It is a matter for you to decide the importance you believe instructing
lawyers will place on the published dates.
