Court Expert Reform Exercise


In May of 2016 the Department of Justice embarked on a Court Experts Reform Exercise as part of the Holistic Justice Reform.
Two calls with an expression of interest for those wishing to serve as court experts have, to date, been issued. The latest call was issued on January 13th of this year and therefore the Department of Justice is currently receiving expressions of interest from newly interested persons to serve as experts at court. The purpose of these calls is to attract more persons interested to serve as court experts in the different areas of expertise, respectively, with the aim  to expand the lists with the names of persons available to serve in the different areas accordingly. This is intended to facilitate the Judiciary’s work in identifying experts in different areas when they need to nominate experts while the lists should come in useful particularly in cases when an expert needs to be appointed in urgent situations,  therefore when readily available lists are a must for the smooth running of and the efficiency during an inquiry or a case.
The appointment of a particular expert or experts on a case or cases in question is the discretion of the Judge or Magistrate presiding over such case/s. It is intended that in the near future, the names of those persons interested to serve as experts be published online who would have complied with a due diligence and given their prior written consent.
Persons who express their interest with the Department of Justice to serve as court experts are requested to complete a due diligence form and submit along with their completed form, among others, a recent police conduct certificate, a certified true copy of their qualifications and a certified copy of their Warrant if the latter is applicable.
This is the first time that such an exercise is being undertaken with respect to the Court Experts System.
Any persons wishing to express their interest in serving may wish to contact us on our generic e-mail:
