Dr. Joseph J. Cramer will give fellow engineers insight into the nature of a trial or administrative law proceeding, and show how this type of adversarial proceeding differs from the collegial environment to which they might be more accustomed. Dr. Cramer will present material from a two-day AIChE course on expert testimony that he taught for ten years with an attorney colleague.
