David presented before a gathering of Alberta and British Columbia civil and criminal lawyers on the topic of the use of expert evidence from a bodily injury perspective.

Moorhead in regard to the use of expert evidence at trial, in his presentation entitled “Has the Role of Experts Changed post-Saadati?; A Bodily Injury Perspective”.
A few of the topics David discussed at the conference included a case commentary and discussion of the Saadati v. Moorhead case; expert witnesses role; identifying strategic and tactical issues from the outset; what does the Court require and expect; and the use of mental health experts at trial post-Saadati.
