Our eighth webinar titled: Experts in Environmental Litigation will be taking place on Wednesday, November 17, 2021 from 12:00 pm to 1:00 pm via Zoom.

Technical experts play a vital role in environmental legal disputes and transactions. Environmental law is complex as are many of the opinions given by experts.

As a result, environmental experts must ask themselves many questions when providing technical inputs and opinions. What are an expert's legal and moral duties? To whom do experts owe these duties? What types of communications should experts expect to have with legal counsel and the party retaining them? What does it mean to be independent and impartial, and how do experts demonstrate this? What are the four corners of an expert's area of expertise? How do and why should experts stay within those four corners? And, is an expert's work subject to legal privilege and what is legal privilege anyway?

Join Marc McAree, Richard Butler, Matthew Gardner, Alessia Petricone-Westwood, and Anand Srivastava at Willms & Shier Environmental Lawyers as they offer a primer on these and other aspects of a technical experts' duties as defined in law, the courts, and as required by Rules of Court and Rules of Professional Conduct.
