Eric Lasker Speaks on Rule 702 Amendments at George Mason University Law School

In November 2021, Eric Lasker spoke on the panel, "Updates on Amendments to Rule 702: Admissibility of Expert Testimony," at the Fifteenth Annual Judicial Symposium on Civil Justice Issues, hosted by the Law & Economics Center at George Mason University Antonin Scalia Law School. 

Mr. Lasker has played a prominent role in the potential amendment over the course of the last seven years and is frequently asked to speak, testify, or publish in support of the amendment.  In 2015, he co-authored “Defending Daubert: It’s Time to Amend Federal Rule of Evidence 702,” 57:1 William & Mary L. Rev. (2015), which triggered the Federal Rules of Evidence Advisory Committee review that led to the current proposed amendments to FRE 702.  At the invitation of the Committee, he participated in a 2018 roundtable discussion on the potential amendment and was subsequently invited to testify before the Committee in January 2022.
