About Medico-Legal Alliance

The Medico-Legal Alliance is made up of lawyers and healthcare professionals drawn from a wide spectrum of fields and specialisations, united by a common concern for the protection and promotion of fundamental human rights. By fostering better mutual understanding between members of both professions and exchanging insights, the Alliance is uniquely placed to be an effective champion of the rights and interests of its members and their patients or clients. A systematic programme of conferences and training events will highlight contemporary challenges and will aim to equip members with the information and skills necessary to meet those challenges.

Registration with the Alliance is free of charge and provides access to regular updates on developments in the medico-legal field, details of forthcoming events, information on the detection and prevention of human rights abuses (particularly where the right to life or bodily integrity are at risk) and continuing professional development generally.
