More Maxims and Guidelines for Testifying in Court

Expert Expert Witness by Stanley L. Brodsky
Book DescriptionIn this text for forensic psychologists, Stanley L. Brodsky, a teacher, scholar and expert witness, describes court work and the legal context, in an informal manner that is more explanatory than adversarial. Brief topic-focused chapters, each summed up with a maxim, teach readers about the typical ploys and techniques used by attorneys to draw out information, either supportive or contradictory. In addition to offering principles, lessons and maxims, this volume addresses specific questions that will be asked, and challenging testimony and worst-case scenarios, many posed by people who have contacted the author about their own courtroom dilemmas. While clearly recognizing the gravity of the expert witness role and of the oath of honesty, Brodsky emphasizes the exhilarating intellectual and professional challenge involved in mastering the courtroom setting.
