Qualifying a Witness

Ordway Hilton, one of the country’s foremost experts in the field of document examination, wrote the following in The Scientific Examination of Questioned Documents:

“The most important qualification of a witness is his ability to do the work. There is no school at which a document examiner, unlike an engineer or a doctor, can study to prepare himself…Self-study is the chief means of gaining this special knowledge.”
