Medical Law and Ethics is an ideal textbook for undergraduate law students, those studying at postgraduate level and researchers.

  • Covers the major topics of medical law and ethics, combining detailed legal exposition and analysis with moral theory and philosophy
  • Considers the wider contextual pressures facing the law such as the impact of patient consumerism, and the changing perceptions of medicine
  • Chapters can be read individually to provide detailed overviews of specific topics or together, as part of the whole, for a comprehensive understanding of the subject. Ethical scenarios are used throughout to highlight and clarify the main points
  • Examines the impact of increasingly direct (international and domestic) recognition of human rights
  • Details all recent legislative developments including the Mental Capacity Act 2005 and Code of Practice, NHS Redress Act 2006, Mental Health Act 2007, Human Fertilisation and Embryology Act 2008 and Code of Practice, and s.59 of the Coroners and Justice Act 2009
  • Examines further developments in relation to clinical negligence, professional regulation, patient complaints, and organ transplantation
  • Includes reference to international instruments and the laws of other jurisdictions enabling students to compare with domestic law
