<jats:p>The author reflects on whether validity can be considered both a principle of law and a functional principle of forensic expert activity. Disclosing the methodological significance of validity, which is yet to be fully and consistently incorporated in the procedural law, the author concludes that validity is understood and applied by the Russian justice and expert community precisely as a principle of law, an imperative indicator of the quality of forensic science for all its procedural forms in the legal process.</jats:p>
