Revisiting Landmark Cases in Medical Law

ISBN13: 9781138808331
To be Published: June 2017
Publisher: Routledge
Country of Publication: UK
Format: Hardback
Price: £90.00



The development of medical law in the UK has been shaped by landmark decisions on such issues as consent, child welfare, genetics, and assisted suicide. Drawing on legal developments in the UK, US, and other jurisdictions, this book revisits a selection of leading cases in medical law, and argues that while the judgments in each came to the correct conclusion, many issues were left unaddressed, and have led to avoidable confusion.

Shaun Pattinson presents an idealised judgment for each case, written with the intention to provide insight into how the court could have supported its conclusions in a way that is more coherent and of greater value as a principle-setting precedent.
