Text, Cases & Materials on Medical Law and Ethics presents a valuable collection of materials relating to this topical and increasingly controversial area of the law. Comprising extracts from statutes, cases and scholarly articles alongside expert author commentary and guidance, Medical Law and Ethics signposts students to all the key issues and principles in medical law.

Divided into two parts, the text concentrates on the general principles that permeate medical law before considering the issues which arise in relation to individual areas of medical treatment. Fully revised and updated, this new edition covers ethics more comprehensively, and includes much-enhanced theoretical treatment.

This fourth edition has been fully updated to take account of recent developments in the law, particularly in the areas of assisted reproduction, euthanasia, cloning and stem cell research. For the first time, Medical Law and Ethics also incorporates a number of helpful pedagogic innovations, including bulleted summaries, questions for thought and further reading lists for each chapter, making it an ideal student companion to this popular subject.
