James Badenoch Q.C: 'This is an important and admirable book - thorough, lucid and extremely practical - it will be an invaluable resource for all who are concerned with medico-legal work.' Professor Rosaleen McCarthy: 'I found the book interesting, informative and helpful. It does an excellent job of explaining what lawyers really need from an expert report, with clear examples of how best to present complex information. It will have a big influence on how I approach my medico-legal reporting in the future. I shall certainly recommend it to my colleagues.' Dr Ejaz Ansari, Consultant Ophthalmologist: 'The perfect guide for those both new and experienced in the area of medico-legal work.' Dr Sam Rowlands, Specialist in contraception and sexual health: 'As an experienced expert witness, I read this book from cover to cover and immediately made significant changes to the wording of my reports. Any serious expert should read this book and take heed of its messages.' Mr Jim Kernohan, Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon: 'When it comes to writing medico-legal reports the court appointed expert needs a reference book. This is an admirable Vade Mecum equally relevant to beginner and the long experienced. The authors complement each other - being a barrister and a forensic communication expert. For the beginner, the basic principles are clearly explained. For the well-versed, the necessary approach to complicated and difficult issues is set out in a practical and user friendly way. The text of 344 pages can be easily navigated. 10 chapters are complimented by 7 appendices, with a working index. The content is written - as with most legal documents - with numbered paragraphs, which allows easy reference.'
