The Medico-Legal Society of Victoria was established in 1931. The objectives of the society are the promotion of medico-legal knowledge and the fostering of professional and collegiate scholarship and interaction among members of the medical and legal professions. This is achieved by facilitating the exchange of ideas and information at general meetings held about six times per year. Persons of eminence in their field are invited to the meetings to deliver papers of mutual interest to the two professions.
