In 2016 Doctor Geoffrey Phillips FRCP was selected by the prestigious Lawyer Monthly magazine for an expert witness award in recognition of his specialist knowledge and experience. Offering his years of experience and many real-life examples from his past cases, he has written a comprehensive guide to those who are thinking about embarking on a career to become an independent medical consultant, acting as an expert witness in court. Each aspect of the process is explained thoroughly in an understandable and clear way, covering all the typical concepts and problems encountered. Whether you’re merely interested in medico-legal work or wondering if becoming a court expert witness is for you, you will find this book an invaluable source of advice, encouragement and practical know-how.

Geoff Phillips is a retired Liverpool Teaching Hospital Consultant Geriatrician who for some 25 years was in increasing demand as a Medico-legal Expert. Throughout his career in medicine (and before) he observed life, and collected an archive of stories reflecting pathos, humour and the oddities of life together with interesting facts. He used some of them to enhance student and postgraduate teaching on his ward rounds and also when giving "after dinner speeches". The book is drawn from that archive and adapted for the general audience.
