Expert witness assignments are exciting and profitable; however, they can also be difficult, controversial, and time consuming. Speakers discuss the keys to success in this area based on their experiences in expert witness assignments.
This seminar gives you a chance to hear an experienced attorney and actuaries present important aspects of being an expert witness. Several experts talk about preparation, depositions, and testimony. The actuaries are experienced in pension, life, and health practice areas. Some of their most interesting and challenging cases are discussed. The role and qualifications of the expert are discussed along with the latest revisions to Actuarial Standard of Practice 17.
The speakers at this seminar illustrate the perils and traps that even the most experienced actuarial practitioner may run into when being deposed or cross-examined in a legal proceeding. If you would like to know what you might expect from testifying on actuarial issues in a legal proceeding, or just want to see some of your peers pitting their wits against an experienced attorney, this thought-provoking and entertaining seminar is not to be missed.
On Thursday, a mock session of direct testimony and cross-examination shows what can happen when you are on the stand. Attendance is limited to a maximum of 30, which permits and encourages audience participation in a unique learning environment of peers.
