THE Society

The Medico-Legal Society of Queensland Inc. was established 70 years ago to foster better communication between the medical and legal professions. Membership comprises almost 400 doctors, solicitors and barristers who meet throughout the year to exchange views on medico-legal issues of mutual interest. These practitioners are the key leaders in their specialties. Each year the society hosts a conference which in recent years has attracted around 150 delegates. Significantly, in 2017 over 190 delegates registered to attend.

As part of its 60th Anniversary celebrations in 2012, the Society hosted the inaugural East Coast Medico-Legal Conference which was a significant success attracting delegates from almost all Australian states. Having established a creditable reputation for our annual conferences, we continue to attract interstate delegates to join Queensland practitioners for a weekend of beneficial exchange of views and knowledge.

The 2022 conference theme is The Future is Now - Medicine, Innovation and the Law. The conference program will focus on technology in medicine, current developments – where are we and where are we going. With thought-provoking key speaker presentations focused on ‘Technology in Healthcare’, ‘Legal Trends and Issues’ and ‘Emerging Technologies in Healthcare’.
We believe both medical and legal practitioners will readily choose to attend and anticipate in-depth and meaningful discussion. As always, speakers are selected based on their expertise, pragmatic approach and experience in their particular field. Invited speakers will be asked to address the pertinent issues raised in the business program and be actively involved in our Q&A discussion sessions.

A committed marketing strategy will be implemented to promote the conference not only to members but also to doctors, lawyers, allied health professionals and medical defence organisation representatives involved in the Queensland medico-legal sector, and interstate.

The conference is being held at the highly acclaimed Surfers Paradise JW Marriott Gold Coast Resort & Spa which offers a wide range of quality facilities for delegates, partners and families.

 

  • Sponsorship of the 2022 conference will significantly highlight your organisations valuable support for the Medico-Legal Society of Queensland’s educational endeavours to facilitate better informed and enhanced communication between the medical and legal professions.
  • Sponsorship provides organisations with an excellent forum to promote their services to a highly pertinent audience. This is particularly advantageous in a competitive environment where there is an increasing number of medico-legal reporting agencies and market opinion services seeking marketshare*.
  • Sponsors will be prominently acknowledged in pre-conference promotional material, the conference website and conference handbook. The conference e-newsletter marketing will be despatched not only to MLSQ’s full membership but more widely to other doctors and lawyers who would be interested in attending the conference.
  • Sponsorship is a very cost-effective way to prominently promote your organisations profile and services to a relevant audience leading up to, during and after the conference.
  • *As the major co-sponsor package has already sold, with the exclusive opportunity to be the only medico-legal reporting agency and medical opinion service company, unfortunately we are unable to accept any other sponsors from these categories.
