Rule 702 


One of the US Federal Rules of Evidence which governs admissibility of scientific evidence in US Federal District Courts and US Magistrates.

These rules provide that unless there is a specific exception, all relevant information is admissible. 

If scientific technical, or other specialised knowledge will assist the trier of fact to understand the evidence or to determine a fact in issue, a witness qualified as an expert by knowledge, skill, experience, training, or education, may testify thereto in the form of opinion or otherwise, in Daubert v Merrell Dow Pharmaceuticals, Inc, 113 S Ct 2786 1993.
