In the article, the legal risk of the researcher in the case of a scientific experiment in the machining of magnesium alloys was determined. The use of magnesium alloys in industry and identification of the problems associated with machining were presented. The issues concerning legal liability in the experiment and provisions ensuring a greater scope of legal protection for the researcher were indicated and challenges in the machining of magnesium alloys were analyzed. Moreover, the method to assess legal risk in experiments was proposed and its application in the experiments was presented. The analysis confirmed the applicability of the proposed method to the analysis of the legal risk.
