Adventures in the Twilight Zone: Empirical Studies of the Attorney-Expert Relationship
T. G. Gutheil,
Journal of the American Academy of Psychiatry and the Law
29(1): 13-17, 2001.
A series of empirical pilot studies, performed during workshops at meetings of
the American Academy of Psychiatry and Law (AAPL), and examining various aspects of the
attorney-expert witness relationship are presented and their implications are discussed. The author
calls for further investigation of a topic that-- although constantly a feature of discussion among
both experts and attorneys-- lacks extensive empirical investigation.
