DOC Exclusive Legal Medical Consultant Bundles 

The need for highly trained medical experts can be found in almost all areas of law, especially litigation. In fact, in one lawsuit, there could be a need for multiple medical experts. Understanding the legal system, different substantive areas of law, and the rules specific to expert witnesses are important for a qualified expert.

This two-course bundled program provides an overview of different substantive areas of law, the litigation process and important considerations for experts. Moreover, the course prepares an expert witness not only for both for discovery and trial, but for becoming an expert.
