Computer science expert witness candidates typically have extensive experience in software engineering, software development, electrical engineering, information technology, and/or as a computer forensic expert. A computer science expert witness needs to not only have substantive expertise, but must also possess the ability to explain electronic evidence and technology to a judge and jury. In a high-profile case, or litigation involving a significant financial stake, the legal team may request a computer scientist with prior expert witness testimony experience.
The field of computer science studies computers and computational systems. Computer science sub-fields include artificial intelligence, computer systems and networks, security, database systems, programming languages, software engineering, bioinformatics and theory of computing. Court cases requiring computer science expert witness services can involve intellectual property litigation, such as software copyright, patent infringement, or trade secret disputes. A criminal investigation involving fraud or electronic discovery data can call for a computer forensics expert. Litigation support by a computer engineering expert could include forensic analysis, reverse engineering, expert report preparation, expert opinion, depositions, and jury trial testimony. In addition, a law firm may request a software engineer or programmer for pre-litigation consulting work.
