On February 4, 2016, Marc McAree will be speaking at the 2016 SMART Remediation Conference.
The conference will be taking place in Ottawa, Ontario at the Ottawa Conference & Event Centre.
Marc's presentation is titled: Experts in Environmental Litigation.
Marc will set out an overview of what environmental litigators should consider when counting on environmental experts in litigation. He will review what environmental litigators need to know about finding and retaining experts, and experts’ professional and legal duties. Marc will also examine what opinions Canadian courts offer about the expected relationship between counsel and experts, and alternative approaches to tendering expert evidence. Finally, Marc will canvass the law of admissibility of expert evidence including how far legal privilege extends over communications with experts and experts’ reports, and how best to establish and maintain an expert’s credibility before and at trial.
This presentation will explore many of the issues set out in Marc’s article titled “Experts in Environmental Litigation” published in Canadian Journal of Administrative Law & Practice, 28 C.J.A.L.P. 111-258, June 2015.
