This unique book is a highly accessible yet comprehensive overview of medical law. It starts with the law relating to pre-birth issues and then moves through the law of consent, confidentiality and clinical negligence to the law of death - including end of life decision-making and the law relating to the ownership of body parts. The author looks critically and in detail at the difficult and controversial cases that have made law and headlines in recent years. He demystifies the subject by identifying the small number of principles which have made the judges decide as they have.
Barristers, solicitors, legal scholars, law students, medical practitioners.
