Testifying on behalf of the defense in a criminal case can raise some questions and challenges for expert witnesses who have never testified, or who have testified only on behalf of the prosecution or in civil cases. This webinar will provide participants with some basic information about the ways that expert testimony can be used on behalf of battered women charged with crimes. The presenter will discuss the different types of cases in which expert testimony can be useful, the role of defense expert testimony in different kinds of cases, and strategies for navigating some of the common challenges that criminal defense cases present. While this webinar will be geared towards new and aspiring expert witnesses, criminal defense attorneys may also find the presentation helpful.
