The Anatomy of Concurrent Evidence or Witness Conferencing, aka ‘Hot Tubbing’ seminar was held on 28 March 2018 at The Central (Clarke Quay). The seminar was chaired by Mr. Chia Chor Leong and the guest speaker was former District Court Judge, Professor Leslie Chew, SC.
Not only did Professor Chew give a broad and robust lecture on the nature, effectiveness and operation of ‘witness conferencing’, he also gave his own pointers about how a fact-finder could apply 'witness conferencing' to greater effectiveness in court and in arbitration hearings. Drawing upon his vast experience as a District Judge of the State Courts, Professor Chew captivated the audience with an interesting and unreported case (involving the application of witness conferencing) whereby he had to hear the contrasting views of climatologists regarding the rainfall of Singapore on a particular day and whether that was the cause for the flooding of a condominium.
