This paper draws on the article 'Forensic Science, Scientific Validity and Reliability: Advice from America' (Ward, Edmond, Martire & Wortley,  Crim LR 357), which considers the implications for English criminal courts of a major Report on forensic science from the President’s Council of Advisors on Science and Technology, defining the concept of “validity” and showing how a number of forensic sciences fall short of this standard. Our conference paper focuses on how expert evidence of questionable validity can be controlled by measures short of exclusion.
