The Expert Medical Witness

The Expert Medical Witness

Edited by Rosalind Winfield


An essential acquisition by any professional who is involved in medico-legal matters, this new book emanates from a seminar held jointly by the Women Lawyers Association and the Medical Women's Society of New South Wales. Papers by leading members of the legal and medical professions cover current issues such as child sexual abuse (the medical examination and the doctor's report) as well as an example of a devastating cross-examination of an expert by Barker QC.
