The Medico-Legal Society of Ireland was formed in 1956 with the aim of promoting discussion and understanding between members of the medical and legal professions. Continuing medical and scientific developments create new medico-legal issues. Also new legislation and the developing body of law affects medical practice. The two professions share common interests and problems and it is in the best interests of both that they should seek a greater understanding of each other’s perspective with regard to such issues.
The society invites speakers to address it on current medico-legal topics and a lively discussion follows each meeting. Members and their guests are also welcome to dine after each meeting.
Membership of the society is open members of the medical and legal professions and to those
a professional interest in medico-legal matters. For further information and application forms, please contact
the Hon. Secretary: Ms. Liz Doyle-Fleming.
