Information sought
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
  • cross-examination.

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 work.

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.

Current status
If you are a listed expert, please log in to view your currently recorded vetting dates, and the total number of positive references we have allocated to your entry.
