Digital Forensic Expert Witness in Court. See Chapter 44 of the book for further reading

One of the digital forensic expert’s most critical moments in fulfilling his engagement obligation to his instructor, is to serve as expert witness in court. For many experts, without prior court experience or some other background in the legal system, the idea of being a testifying witness can be intimidating. But this is easily avoided where the forensic expert witness has sufficient understanding of the facts, issues and technique, and the ability to communicate these facts, methodology and technique, in a compelling manner.
