Abstract

This volume provides in depth coverage of the topics that lawyers and judges must know when dealing with expert testimony about medicine, engineering, psychology, economics, and forensic science, among other areas. It covers the topics common to all such testimony and focuses on scientific and statistical evidence, providing sophisticated and up-to-date explanations and analyses of:

  • The principles and policies underlying all the approaches to admitting scientific evidence, from the traditional relevance standard to the most restrictive interpretations of the Supreme Court's watershed opinion in Daubert v. Merrell Dow Pharmaceuticals.
  • An in-depth look at the continuing importance and practical operation of the Frye standard.
  • Qualifications for expert witnesses.
