Online Expert Witness Training

Taught by leading medico-legal experts, our online training courses cover all the key skills you’ll need to be an effective expert witness.

Currently, we offer four online courses:

  • Report Writing
  • Conference with Counsel
  • Meetings with Experts
  • Giving evidence in Court

Gaining practical experience

At Inspire MediLaw, we believe in the importance of learning by ‘doing’ rather than just listening, watching or reading. Our expert witness training courses are all highly interactive – with practical tasks to test your learning as you progress.  On completion, you will have a good understanding of the litigation process, your role and responsibilities and how to fulfil your duties effectively.

We have designed most of the interactive tasks around one case  study.  You can either take each course as a standalone module or complete all four courses in chronological order and take this case through the various stages of litigation.

Expert witness training certification 

On completion of this expert witness training, you will receive a CPD certificate.  Once you have completed all four courses, you can apply to become an Inspire MediLaw Accredited Expert.

The courses are suitable for medical experts who are new to expert witness work and also for more experienced practitioners.

Training led by renowned legal experts

Our expert witness courses are taught by many distinguished Barristers, Lawyers, Solicitors and a former High Court Judge. So, you will learn from some of the brightest minds in the legal sector.

Alongside our legal experts, you will learn from fellow medics who are highly experienced expert witnesses.  They will share their expertise, insights and tips to support your development.

Dr Simon Fox QC, Barrister at Serjeants’ Inn
