San Francisco Superior Court Judge Garrett Wong will lead this day long training to hone your skills related to testifying as an expert witness.  A mock hearing using a fictitious competency case will be held to discuss common mistakes new expert witnesses often make.  Highly experienced expert witnesses and notable attorneys will play the roles in the mock trial and will offer insights on giving effective testimony on the stand and in the corresponding reports. Judge Wong will round out the day with a judge’s perspective on live testimony and written reports.  This seminar is appropriate for mental health experts who may be called upon to testify in court and attorneys who want to learn more about expert testimony by mental health professionals.
