The expert witness has been the subject of extensive recent commentary and legislative reform. The author investigates the nature of the controversy underlying the role of the expert witness in the modern judicial system and by means of historical analysis argues the need for a fundamental alteration in the concept of the expert witness. A statute is proposed to accomplish this reform.
