The Judicial College of Victoria provides guidance for Judges in Victoria, it describes itself as ‘ a trusted place where the judiciary come to share knowledge, wisdom and expertise.’
The home page provides information about various manuals including a civil procedures book. Interesting information on expert witnesses http://www.judicialcollege.vic.edu.au/eManuals/Civil/index.htm#44187.htm. for example:
The Act gives courts the power to give any direction considered appropriate in respect of experts giving evidence at trial (s65K(1)).
Such directions may include directing an expert witness to:
give evidence at any stage of a trial, including after all factual evidence has been adduced on behalf of all parties
give evidence concurrently with one or more other expert witnesses
give an oral exposition of their opinion on any issue
give their opinion of an opinion given by other expert witnesses
be examined, cross-examined or re-examined in a particular manner or sequence, including by putting to each expert witness, in turn, each issue relevant to one matter or issue at a time
be permitted to ask questions of any other expert witness who is concurrently giving evidence (s65K(2)).
The court may question an expert witness in order to identify the real issues in dispute between two or more expert witnesses. This includes questioning more than one expert witness simultaneously (s65K(3)).
