Legal Medicine

Established in November 1995, The Australasian College of Legal Medicine provides a network for doctors and dentists who have completed dual qualifications in law and medicine or dentistry, or forensic medicine, or whose areas of practice are impacted by the law and who have consequently elected to undertake internal College or external training to gain at least a basic understanding of the law as it applies to their practices for the benefit of their patients.

The term Legal Medicine represents four broad areas of medical practice; encapsulating the fields of Civil Legal Medicine, Criminal or Forensic Legal Medicine, Medical Ethics and medical practice areas affected by statute law.
