THE MEDICO-LEGAL REPORT, 2021
Medico-legal reports have been the subject of study by the Medico-Legal Society of Toronto (“MLST”) since 1971, when suggested guidelines and a detailed skeleton outline for the preparation of medico-legal reports were published in a letter from the then President. Between 1970 and 1977, another document was developed and entitled the “Inter-Professional Code of the Medico-Legal Society of Toronto”. This document was a statement of principles governing some physician-lawyer relationships, and included topics such as “Subpoenas and Court Attendance“, “The Medical Witness”, “Medical Expenses” and “Consideration and Disposition of Complaints".
