ABOUT THE WEBINAR
In this webinar, Marc Resnick will address what every HF/E expert NEEDS to know about human factors/ergonomics in the legal environment.
Legal professionals don't think the same way HF/E professionals do—lawyers, judges, or juries. Less experienced HF/E forensic practitioners may find that themselves falling into traps that can hurt their ability to be an effective expert. This webinar will introduce HF/E practitioners interested in becoming forensics experts to many of these traps and some best practices for how to avoid them. Experienced forensic experts will gain ideas about how to improve their practice.
Topics include tips for interacting with lawyers, judges, and jurors; adjusting traditional HF/E methods to be most applicable and accepted in the legal domain; and how to balance the objectivity one needs to maintain as an HF/E professional and an advocate for the client.
