For members and prospective members to access information about the Society, its events, membership, and more.


The Medico-Legal Society of Toronto was founded in 1950 by a group of doctors and lawyers to promote medical, legal and scientific knowledge, cooperation and understanding between the professions.

Membership in the Society is open to members of the medical, legal and related professions.

Membership Committee Calling for Your Assistance!

The Medico-Legal Society of Toronto is calling for your assistance to increase our membership, and especially for medical members. Our membership has increased in recent years; however, a majority of new members are from the legal field. The COVID-19 pandemic has prompted the MLST to expand in providing great economical virtual programs, some of which would be of interest to medical professionals (e.g. Law of Acute Care Medicine, CPSO Registrar, Cutting-Edge Medicolegal Cases). For a full listing of our upcoming webinars, CLICK HERE

Some of our practices have a reference collection of physician CVs, and it is our hope that you will be able to assist with increasing our medical community membership. We would kindly ask that you compose a list of suitable physician expert witnesses that do not list MLST membership in their CV. Contact could be personally made by you as legal counsel, or alternatively delegated to a legal assistant to send a brief e-mail query to the physician inviting them to consider membership. Attached is a one-page document on the MLST which could be distributed as part of that outreach that is focused on aspects of interest for a prospective medical MLST member.
