With amendments to Federal Rule of Evidence 702 (“FRE 702”) going into effect next month, now is the time to prepare and review your strategy — whether you’re a litigator who regularly retains, works with, and opposes experts, or a professional who is regularly retained as an expert witness in litigation.
I’m participating in a Bloomberg Law webinar featuring a panel discussion about FRE 702 basics, Daubert motion strategy, and the effect of the new amendments to the rule. The webinar will take place Nov. 15, 2023, at 2:00 PM EST.
The discussion will be moderated by Golriz Chrostowski, principal legal analyst at Bloomberg Law, and my fellow panelists will be Dustin Rawlin, managing partner at Nelson Mullins, and Erin Webb, principal legal analyst at Bloomberg Law. We’ll look at how things might change when the new rule comes into effect.
FRE 702 governs the admissibility of expert witness testimony in litigation. Following FRE 702's enactment, the Supreme Court provided a framework on how courts should evaluate expert opinions for their admissibility, which was incorporated into later amendments to the rule. The recent amendment addresses the standard of proof and the burdens involved in demonstrating the admissibility of expert opinions.
