Ethics for Experts

This seminar will provide an insight into ethics as they apply to expert witnesses in the Planning and Environment Court and the Land Court. 


In particular, you will hear:

  • From the judiciary on the Court’s expectations of expert witnesses in relation to ethics, their duty to the Court, and conflicts of interest;
  • From an experienced planning and environment lawyer on what lawyers and barristers are looking for when seeking to engage an expert and the expert’s role in the appeal process; and
  • From an experienced expert witness on what to expect before you accept a brief and how to deal with ethical behaviour prior to and during the course of an appeal, including conflicts of interest.


  • His Honour Judge Michael Williamson QC
  • Gerard Timbs, Partner, Holding Redlich Lawyers
  • Jennifer Morrissy, Director, Morrissy Town Planning


  • Chris Schomburgk, Principal, Schomburgk Planning
