Law 101: Legal Guide for the Forensic Expert

Research, Teaching and Writing

Preparing articles for publication has the same benefit as classroom teaching for the expert witness. The article, monograph, book, chapter or text cannot be properly and correctly produced without substantial research effort.

These same qualities can benefit the expert who seeks or accepts opportunities to teach others in the same field. Classroom teaching is a learning opportunity, as is professional, technical or scientific writing. The motivation for both undertakings is to advance knowledge in a particular field. Often, an investigation that requires expert testimony can become the subject of a paper, article or textbook chapter.
