  Expert Witness Survey 2013

What is it that experienced expert witnesses most want to know about their colleagues? Well, how much they charge comes close to the top of the list! By taking part you can contribute to this snapshot of the expert witness world in 2013.

‘How much do my colleagues charge?’ is the question most frequently asked of our Helpline by experts new to litigation. In my mind, there is no more useful way to satisfy this demand for information than to conduct regular surveys among the experts listed in the UK Register of Expert Witnesses and the wider expert witness community.

We have undertaken biannual surveys since 1995, the combined results of which now provide the very best source of intelligence on the changing nature of expert witness work. Our research has proved invaluable when responding to various Ministry of Justice and Legal Aid Agency consultation papers. Please contribute to this survey so that the ‘Establishment’ can be presented with accurate data on expert fees and other aspects of expert witness practice.

This year’s questionnaire focuses on an expert’s work as an expert witness, terms of engagement, conditions and charging rates, and the trends in volume of work. You can complete the survey on line, anonymously if you prefer. We will publish the results in the pages of Your Witness. You can read the reports from our previous expert witness surveys in the expert survey archive.
