Session Abstract: Social justice comprehends the measures in which stress and advantages are dispersed among the different communities of the society. This involves the justice in which the society assures, contributes and recognize the channels and qualities that individual requires to both determine the conception of, and live, a good life. Justice education encompasses the objectives relating to equitable, qualitative and unbiased education for all students. Justice education is both a mechanism and an ambition. This objective of justice education requires complete and equivalent participation of the groups and communities of the societies that mutually construct the foundation to achieve their needs and goals. Understanding the requirement of participation of every sector of society in justice education, this session talks about the need and role of health science and forensic science professionals in the justice education. Education regarding medical jurisprudence is necessary to build the sense of justice among people. In simple language, medical jurisprudence deals with the application of medical science to legal problems. So, health and forensic’ professionals are required to educate the students to have the clear understanding of the laws related to medical science. For example, laws related to medical negligence by doctors, maternity laws, medicolegal aspects of maternity and health rights. Lawyers deal with medical issues in their legal practice, know very little about the medical profession and its problems; physicians frequently comprehend too little about the law and how it affects them in the practice of their profession. Medico legal experts can provide a link between these two professions for their smooth & effective functioning in a scientific manner. This session demonstrates the link between the two and will help in understanding the respective laws more clearly. This education is necessary to achieve social justice.
