Book review: 'Legal Mind: Contemporary Issues in Psychological Injury and Law by Dr Hugh Koch' - Editorial
05/12/16. This book is a detailed guide to some of the issues which can arise in relation to expert evidence with respect to psychological injury claims. It examines first diagnosis, treatment and prognosis and then moves on to specific evidential issues such as causation and reliability of evidence. There then follows a guide to understanding the experts and another to understanding lawyers (a tall order perhaps!)
The tone is practical and also topical with a look at issues such as the use of joint opinion and hottubbing among others. This is a thorough and thought-provoking book aimed at both experts and lawyers and provides a worthwhile and helpful contribution to the whole issue of expert psychological evidence.
