Application: Daubert Standard

The term expert witness may be applied to a person in a profession or area of expertise who might aid the court in the administration of justice. Over the years, courts have used various legal standards to determine who may be called to testify as an expert witness.

This week, you focus on the case of Daubert v. Merrell Dow Pharmaceuticals, which produced the standard for expert testimony that is used in most jurisdictions and is commonly referred to as the "Daubert standard."
