Forensic Expert Day in Ukraine Forensic Expert Day is a Ukrainian professional holiday celebrated on July 4 each year. It was established in 2009 by President Viktor Yushchenko.

Forensic experts are scientists who gather and examine information about the past which is used in a court of law. There are numerous subdivisions of modern forensic science, from forensic investigation to forensic toxicology.

As the work of forensic scientists is to be used in court as a very powerful evidence, such experts must be methodical, thorough, and above all, unbiased. They often have to testify in court as expert witnesses.

The celebration of Forensic Expert Day was proposed by the Coordinating Council on Forensics which operates under the Ministry of Justice of Ukraine. The President supported the initiative and issued the decree “On Forensic Expert Day”.

The holiday recognizes significant contributions of forensic experts to ensuring justice. Currently there are about 6,000 certified forensic experts in Ukraine, about 1,500 of them are employed by state forensic institutions.
