Welcome Message
from the IALM President

Dear Members of the IALM, dear friends,


It is an honour for me to have been elected as new president of the International Academy of Legal Medicine (IALM) and big responsibility as well.

First of all I would like to thank the work of the previous presidium under the leadership of Professor Davide Ferrara. The progress in internationalization and the combination of scientific excellent with humanitarian aspects have been impressive achievements of the previous board that we hope to continue during the new presidential term.

Our Academy is celebrating this year the 80th anniversary, a long record of activities promoting collaboration in the field and contributing to the scientific progress of Legal Medicine all over the world.

On behalf of new elected board I can only promise all our efforts to try to achieve these aims. We dream with an Academy where experts of the different fields of our discipline from all the countries can feel at home, exchanging ideas and knowledge so we can progress towards a better forensic science and therefore to a better justice.


Warmest regards to all


Angel Carracedo

IALM President
