Principles of Medical Law is the leading practitioner text in medical law.

Now in its third edition, it provides a comprehensive and scholarly account of the common law and statutory provisions governing care provision in England and Wales.

The contributors include many of the leading academics and practitioners working in the area of medical law today. The book provides an authoritative and up-to-date account of medical law whilst also seeking to set the law in context and critique its application.

This new edition will include greater consideration of related health care ethics and human rights issues where appropriate. The book includes major statutory and common law changes including the Human Tissue Act 2008.
