“MEDICOLEGAL” is the term, which incorporates the basics of two divergent professions i.e. Medicine and Law. Everybody talks about “the law” but few, aside from lawyers, judges and law teachers, have more than the vaguest notion of what constitutes “law”.
The average layman often has about as much accurate information about “the law” as he has about medicine – or life on Venus. But, unfortunately, two mutually dependant professional groups, who work together on medico-legal issues, suffer from more ignorance of law and medicine than is good for them – lawyers, at least those who do not constantly deal with medical issues in their legal practice, know very little about the medical profession and its problems; and, physicians comprehend too little about the law and how it affects them in the practice of their profession. This subject does not form a part of the educational curriculum of either of them, so far. Medico legal experts, therefore, provide a link between these two professions for their smooth & effective functioning, on medico-legal issues, in a scientific manner.
