Message From The President
Learn the many benefits of MLSM membership.
I was honoured to be elected President of MLSM at the recently
concluded Annual General Meeting at the Perdana Room of the
Royal Lake Club. It will not be an easy task to follow in the
footsteps of our Immediate Past President, Dhinesh Baskaran,
who did an excellent job to raise the MLSM's profile during
his tenure and increase the membership drive.
has approximately 574 members spanning three professions:
doctors, solicitors and barristers. Associate members
represent professionals working in the medico-legal industry
including allied health practitioners, nurses, medical
administrators, medical defence organizations, medico-legal
reporting agencies and tertiary students of medicine and law.
The mix of members provides a unique opportunity for
practitioners of these disciplines to meet, share knowledge
and exchange views of medico-legal issues and to understand
how these issues affect each profession.
We hope to
come up with a MLSM Award to recognize the outstanding
contribution made by members of the medical, legal or
scientific community. This award is the highest expression of
esteem which the society can convey and is intended to honour
members who have made a significant contribution to their
profession as well as either the society or community at large
and those contributions with the values of the society. With a
committee of a good mix of youth and experienced leaders in
the legal and medical profession, we would like to explore and
expand on the MLSM Expert Witness directory.
will be ever willing to consider any suggestions or
constructive criticism that members may have and enhance
social networking opportunities between these two professions.
Prof Dato’ Dr Balwant Singh Gendeh
