Civil legal expert examination in Portugal: Situation and development

The Eurexpertise project made it possible to draw up an exhaustive inventory and objective analysis of the rules and practices used in the field of civil expertise throughout the EU, and to propose to the European authorities consensual reform suggestions to decrease the amount of divergences.

The country profiles resulting from this work are presented in the final report Eurexpertise, published in 2012 and are progressively updated under the supervision of the Institute and published in partnership with the journal Experts.

The description for Portugal has been updated and published in Experts Review n ° 131 of April 2017, thanks to the voluntary work of contributors from the European judicial and expert world.

With the kind permission of Marie-Hélène Bernard, editor of the Revue Experts.
