Lord Neuberger of Abbotsbury appointed Deputy President of The Academy of Experts.
It was announced this week that the Rt Hon Lord Neuberger of Abbotsbury has been appointed Deputy President of The Academy of Experts.
The announcement was made by the president of the Academy, Lord Saville of Newdigate on 18th of May. Lord Neuberger will succeed Lord Saville as President of The Academy later in the year.
Lord Neuberger commented on his appointment:"It is an honour to have been invited to succeed Mark Saville as President of The Academy of Experts.In seeking to ensure that expert witnesses in court and arbitral proceedings adhere to high standards, the Academy performs a very important role.
It is fundamental to the rule of law that legal proceedings are, and are seen to be, professionally and fairly conducted and in this increasingly technical world where such proceedings increasingly require technical evidence, so that the need for reliable experts is greater than ever. And I would add that the present COVID-19 pandemic has served to bring home to many people who may not have fully appreciated it the importance not just of experts, but of reliable and independent experts."
Lord Neuberger is the Chairman of the BIICL 60+ Appeal , which aims to raise £3 million over five years to support the expansion of BIICL's work and impact.
