The Medico-Legal Reports, 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, “Inter-Professional Code of the Medico-Legal Society of Toronto.” In 1982, the guidelines and outline for preparing medico-legal reports and the Inter-Professional Code were combined into a substantially expanded and updated document entitled, “A Report on Medico-Legal Reports.” It received endorsement by the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Ontario, the Ontario Medical Association, the Canadian Bar Association of Ontario, and the Advocates’ Society. The “Medico-Legal Report” has since been updated and revised in 1990, 1997, 2002, 2008, 2010, and most recently in late 2020 (released in 2021), as a result of further developments in case law and medico-legal practices. Further details behind the revisions are described in the 2021 Report under "History of this Document" at pp.7-8.
