The date to testify is at hand and you will now need to enter the legal work, where lawyers and judges speak a different language to those of us in DFIR. To be an effective witness you need to have some understanding about their world and their language, and core concepts that they will be exposed to when testifying. It is crucial to be able to bring both of these worlds together, and the best way to do this is to help each side understand the other.

This webcast, the second in a series of three, will help the first time or inexperienced witness to understand some of the core legal concepts you will need to be familiar with, understand how to effectively interact with lawyers, and the duties and responsibilities you have as a witness.
