Using the code ‘Witnesses' Job/Status’

This code can be used to retrieve information about the individuals involved in the case according to their profession or their different roles and perspectives. By choosing a specific job description such as social worker, the user will retrieve data showing everything that any social worker discussed during the court case.

E.g. To understand the role of a social worker as a practitioner and as a professional witness in a court case

Do the following:

  1. If anything is still selected (text in the lists are highlighted) then click on the ‘Reset Form’ button at the bottom of the page.
  2. In the area where you can select the role or occupation of the witness: - Select 'Social Worker' (click once with the mouse)
  3. Click on the 'Show Quotations' button at the bottom of the page
  4. A new page opens showing all the data you have retrieved. This can be cut and pasted into a word processing file for later use.

Research use

This retrieval can be repeated with other jobs or status to produce several sets of data that can be used to compare and contrast people's different roles/perspectives.
