As expert witnesses Planners are involved in a wide range of work that include licencing, building and contractual disputes and can extend to noise and matrimonial cases as well as appeals and public inquiries.

Court practice requires skills additional to those traditionally held by town planners and is a specialist area of expertise.

Our event draws on the experience and expertise of leading experts in advocacy, witness evidence and decision taking to inform professional members of their role and duties to the court or tribunal with a focus on preparing and giving evidence.

With the imminent release of a new practise direction relating to expert witness testimony in November 2018 this event is essential for all planners practicing or intending to practice as expert witnesses.
