This article deals with selected issues relating to legislation governing judicial experts and its possible future development. Expert and translator Act from 1967 was not substantially amended until 2011, but the legislation still remains outdated. Last government prepared the bill on judicial experts, but due to political consequences this draft law was not finally voted. The author of this text analyses the aim of the legislation on experts, organisation of state administration of experts, exercise of expert’s duties by moral persons and conditions for nominating an expert.
