Correspondence on The Structural Engineer as Expert Witness by Mr. P.J. Cole

Mr J. G. Roddick (M) (formerly W. S. Atkins) Mr Cole’s article provides a most useful legal background to this subject but, in my opinion, it also identifies an ethical issue which is of fundamental importance to members of the Institution. It contrasts the expert witness’s appointment by one of the parties to a dispute with the expert’s duty to the court to be scrupulously impartial.
