The World Association for Medical Law (WAML) was established and the first Congress was held in Ghent, Belgium in 1967.

The purpose of the WAML is to encourage the study and discussion of health law, legal medicine and ethics, for the benefit of society and the advancement of human rights. The aim of the WAML is to promote the study of the consequences in jurisprudence, legislation and ethics of developments in medicine, health care and related sciences.

Since its creation the WAML held 19 World Congresses, and used its International Journal Medicine and Law for the publication of more than 2000 articles of authors from more than 100 countries. The Association engages in educational activities and aims to promote discussion and deliberation among academic and non academic channels, through its bi-monthly Members Newsletter, its regular Radio Program and more.

If you are interested in taking part in these activities and join our growing WAML family, you may apply for membership online.
