Founded in 1956

Medico-Legal Society of Ireland

Welcome to the Medico-Legal Society of Ireland 

The Medico-Legal Society of Ireland was formed in 1956 with the aim of promoting discussion and understanding between members of the medical, legal and associated professions. Continuing medical and scientific developments create new medico-legal issues. New legislation and legal developments affect medical practice. The professions share common interests and problems thus benefiting both areas to seek a greater understanding of each other’s perspectives on common issues. 

The Society invites key speakers  to address current medico-legal topics. The academic lectures attract Continuous Professional Development (CPD) points. Each lecture for the  forthcoming 68th Session will  provide  2 CPD points.  The Society is currently in recess while the 68th Programme is being prepared by Council.
