The printed version of the UK Register of Expert Witnesses is available free to that segment of the legal profession which accounts for 80% of its total income and undertakes almost all its litigation work (just under 6,000 UK firms, including barristers, law libraries and trading standards offices). Insurers and corporate lawyers, amongst others, may also purchase it. The Register is not sold direct to the public.
The printed book is published annually at the end of April, with administrative preparations beginning in January and ending early in March. The software is made available at the end of April, to coincide with the printing of the book. Software can be updated via the internet on a regular basis. The ease and flexibility of web publishing means that our Web Register is updated daily.
The sooner an application is returned, the sooner the vetting procedure can be completed and an expert’s details included in our in-house and on-line searches.
