The expert witness can be an integral part of the legal process, but is an expert an advocate for his client or a 'judge’s little helper'?

If you’re interested in becoming an expert witness, or are likely to be involved in a case where an expert witness has been appointed, it’s important that you understand fully what the court rules and protocol have to say.
