Event Details

The role of the expert witness in the courtroom is as complex, controversial and ever-changing as the rules of evidence.  Advances in scientific knowledge and emerging codes of ethics for diverse professionals dramatically affect legal strategy and alter relationships between attorneys and witnesses.

This day-long symposium sponsored by the Drexel Law Review will explore dynamic and evolving aspects of advocacy.  7 CLE credits are available, including 2 ethics credits. 

Pre-eminent legal professionals, evidence scholars, jurists and psychologists offering their perspectives on this critical topic will include:

  • Michael Avery, Professor of Law, Suffolk University School of Law (ret.) and co-author, "The Handbook of Massachusetts Evidence"
  • The Hon. Mark I. Bernstein, Judge, First Judicial District of Pennsylvania and author, "Pennsylvania Rules of Evidence"
  • Gerald Cooke, PhD, Cooke Forensic Psychology
  • Gregory Cowhey, Principal, McGladrey LLP
  • Dorothy Duffy, Partner, O'Brien & Ryan LLP
  • The Hon. Elizabeth T. Hey, Magistrate Judge, U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania
  • David Rudovsky, Senior Fellow, University of Pennsylvania Law School and co-author, "Police Misconduct: Law and Litigation"
