Computer Software Expert Witnesses
Computer software expert witness candidates typically have extensive experience in computer science, software development, computer forensics, electrical engineering, telecommunications, and/or information technology. A computer software engineer has expertise in programming languages, software development, and computer operating systems, and applies engineering principles to create software systems.

In addition to technical expertise, a software expert witness must possess the ability to explain complex software issues to a judge and jury.
