Subject Matter Experts and Consulting


What is a subject matter expert (SME)?

According to, ” person with bona fide expert knowledge about what it takes to do a particular job.  First-level supervisors are normally good SME’s.  Superior incumbents in the same or very similar positions and other individuals can also be used as SME’s if they have current and thorough knowledge of the job’s requirements”.

Is there a legal standard by which one can be classified as a SME?

Daubert set forth a non-exclusive checklist for trial courts to use in determining whether or not to admit expert testimony.  The specific factors identified by the Supreme Court in Daubert are: (1) whether the expert’s theory can be or has been tested objectively, as opposed to being a subjective, conclusory approach that cannot be verified; (2) whether the expert’s theory has been subjected to peer review or publications; (3) whether the expert’s theory is subject to known or potential rates of error; (4) whether the expert’s theory comports with applicable standards and controls; and (5) whether the expert’s theory has acquired general acceptance in the relevant academic community.
