Benefits of becoming a member

ACLM membership offers the opportunity to meet with like-minded professionals, attend college courses and conferences, and receive the Journal of Law and Medicine at reduced membership rates. Members and Fellows are invited to join our Expert Witness Database.

A Fellow is entitled to claim his or her membership of the College as having specialist knowledge and experience and is entitled to use the post-nominal “FACLM”. While a Member is not entitled to claim his or her membership as denoting a specialist knowledge and experience, the post-nominal “MACLM” may be used after his or her name to signify membership of the College.

Future opportunities

The College is investigating how to best establish the reintroduction of the Master in Legal Medicine (MLM) qualification, in conjunction with a university faculty of medicine, with negotiations underway. Once this process has been successfully concluded, this will become one of the most appropriate pathways to facilitate College membership at the various levels.  The LML, or less substantive diploma qualifications, will be administered by the College, in conjunction with formal accreditation/recognition by the university underwriting their academic standing and awarding the suitable qualifications.
