One of the most important interfaces between medicine and law occurs in the courtroom. When medical issues are litigated, physicians have potential to make excellent witnesses. This article reviews the proper role, qualifications, and ethical requirements of expert witnesses, the law of professional negligence, and the regulation of unprofessional testimony. Expert witness reform is also briefly discussed.
