San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) February 08, 2018
The Forensic Expert Witness Association's (FEWA) National Conference is an annual event that brings together a large and diverse group of professionals from across the country who share common goals related to forensic consulting and expert witness services in all fields of discipline. FEWA welcomes new and experienced forensic consultants, attorneys, legal professionals, exhibitors, and those interested in exploring forensic consulting as a career to attend the 2018 National Conference, April 27-28 at the San Francisco Bar Association Conference Center located on Battery Street in the heart of San Francisco’s Financial District.
The FEWA National Conference offers forensic consultants who often serve as expert witnesses, the opportunity to enhance their knowledge and techniques required to perform in an effective manner. Forensic experts testify in court trials or provide vital information that will be used in a trial, arbitration, or mediation. Oftentimes, they must perform highly technical and precise work where one misstep can have an adverse impact on a legal case. In almost every case, attorneys rely on the expertise of the expert from initial reports to deposition to trial. FEWA trains experts to be expert witnesses in all fields.
The conference schedule features two days of continuing education sessions for experts and networking with attorneys, judges, arbitrators and trial consultants, plus a 1/2 day workshop for those seeking to become a forensic consultant. In addition, the conference offers attendees the opportunity to earn credit hours of Minimum Continuing Legal Education (MCLE), Continuing Professional Education (CPE) for CPAs, plus Continuing Education Credits towards FEWA’s Certified Forensic Litigation Consultant (CFLC) credential.

The schedule of courses is designed to be of interest to experts of all disciplines and all levels
of experience. Attendees benefit from highly regarded speakers and leaders in the field typically lead attorneys, litigators, partners, judges, State Bar Presidents, law school professors, expert witnesses, and many more. The conference provides experts the opportunity to network and speak directly with professionals in an individual and interactive group-learning environment.
