The issue of outside professional activities, specifically testifying as an expert witness, has been raised recently by a member. The DFA Board believes that some members may be interested in the relevant part of the APM that relates to this particular activity.
Page 8 of APM 025 states that testifying as an expert witness is an activity accepted as part of what faculty members do. There is a time limit: You can’t do more than ca. 39 days. Also, you have to report this on your annual report of professional activities.
