Why did SRLA decide to add this Professional Expert Listing feature to its website? SRLA BOD decided to maintain the Expert Witness Listing as a service to interested members, as well as to the profession.  SRLA maintains the website listing for SRLA members who have chosen to be listed in their areas of expertise.

Does SRLA validate the accuracy of information included in the one page curriculum vitae accompanying those individuals identified on the SRLA Professional Expert Listing? No.

What is the reason for the one page curriculum vitae? The one-page curriculum vitae serves as introductory information to those viewing and/or seeking to enlist the assistance of an expert witness. The one page curriculum vitae allows for uniformity and efficiency.  The SRLA member, if contacted by a professional needing to secure an expert witness, can provide a more thorough and comprehensive vita at that time.

How long do I have to wait until my application is processed and I am able to see my name appear in the SRLA Professional Expert Listing? SRLA will  process incoming applications in a timely fashion.
