Expert Evidence: Working With Individual Experts and Universal Expert Declarations

This webinar is geared towards a legal advocate audience. CGRS attorneys will discuss the role of expert testimony in asylum cases and when and how working with experts can help you build your case. We will walk through features in the CGRS expert database, including tips on how attorneys can use the database to find the right experts for their case. We will also discuss when and how to use universal expert declarations, which are declarations with specialized information on a topic that are not individually tailored to the facts of a specific case. We welcome questions submitted in advance of the webinar.

Date and Time: September 29, 2021, 10:30-11:30 am PDT.
Presenters: Neela Chakravartula, Christine Lin, and Anne Peterson
