Promoting medico-legal knowledge in all its aspects


The Society’s current president, Sir Robert Francis QC is best known for his chairmanship of the Mid Staffordshire NHS Trust Public Enquiry. He was installed on 11th October  2018 –  our first meeting of the 2018-2019 season. His presidential address concerned the sad cases of Alfie Evans and Charlie Gard and  whether withdrawal of treatment was in the best interests of such children. A full report will appear in the Medico-Legal Journal in due course.


The Society holds an annual black tie dinner at which a distinguished lawyer proposes a toast to “Medicine” and a distinguished doctor toasts “the Law.” The 2019 dinner is scheduled to take place on 20th May. Particulars of the speakers and the venue will follow.
