Now in its second edition, this classic reference text has been expanded and fully revised to bring the work up to date to Summer 2003. Written and edited by a team of experts, it covers all aspects of medical law from the regulation of the medical professions to intellectual property, and from issues of patient consent to those of liability for negligent treatment, defective medicines, or malfunctioning equipment.

As with the previous edition, the book has been structured so as to meet the needs of the practitioner whilst retaining a depth of analysis which academics will welcome. It will be kept up to date by way of regular updating supplements.
