Overview

A focus on the interplay between medical law and medical ethics makes this refreshing new textbook the most balanced approach available to students of law and medicine. By offering a unique chapter structure which gives equal weight to both the legal and ethical issues it allows for an appreciation of all factors at play in the field of medical law. In addition, its student-friendly writing style combined with critical analysis gives students the tools to engage with key issues and form their own understanding. Accompanying online case studies convey the law in practice, and encourage students to consider their own views and arguments in terms of legal analysis and ethical consideration. Coverage of recent judicial cases and statutes, with a good balance of factual detail and critical analysis, allows students to engage with this evolving discipline.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"A splendid text: clear, accessible, penetrating, thoughtful, well pitched for undergraduate students, yet useful and thought-provoking for more advanced readers. [An] unusually sophisticated treatment of the complex interplay of law and ethics. So far as the law is concerned, [it is] rigorously scholarly but always practical and down to earth. It's excitingly different from other books. I will be recommending it to students here in Oxford."
Charles Foster, University of Oxford
