Excellent ... a searching critique of modern medical law (New Law Journal)

Format: Paperback
This is the very best introductory book on UK medical law and ethics. The only problem with it until recently was that it was out of date; the new edition rememdies this. It remains hugely readable, concise, informative, well written and enjoyable. If you just want a book on medical law and ethics because you are interested in the subject, this is it...if you are a student, view it as essential reading!

I am interested in the ethics of embryonic stem cell research and someone recommended I read this book. I'm not one for legal jargon so was apprehensive, but this is a brilliant resource and contains some absolutely fascinating information about all areas of medical law. Some parts were a little tough for me but this is primarily a law text (and I'm not a lawyer). I was very pleased to find it far from daunting for the most part.

Of all the books I've read in this area, this was the one that particularly interested me. Her style and language was clear, and did not weigh the text down with too much legal terminology making it equally approachable for those in medicine as those in law. If you want to know about this area this is the book to read.

More than just a collection of references of court cases, this book presents the reader with a more ethical view of the law as regards medicine. A must for medical students and doctors alike

Format: Paperback
This text is an essential read for any health professional. It is presented in clear chapters which detail a vast number of interesting medical law cases. The authors provide insightful discussion on and around the cases and pose questions to foster your critical thinking skills. If you are a student or qualified nurse or medic or an academic within these fields I would recommend this book without hesitation. Excellent read and very interesting. This text will certainly make you think and question yourself, the law and justice!

Format: Paperback
This is a great book to buy as an extra to your recommended textbooks in medical law as it gives a simple introduction to what can be a complex subject. A must buy for all medical law students!!!!

In response to the comment that it overemphasises the sterilization of the mentally ill, this book is primarily a student textbook. This subject is examinable in several areas of medical law and, whilst it may seem to labour the point, must be covered in each of those areas to provide an examinable structure.

This book is written very differently to other medical law books, it is much more accessible and uses a clear and logical approach to break down the topics and issues. In fact if your new to medical law and didn't have a clue about the subject this is probably the best book to introduce you to it.

This is a good summary of the subject and is very well written. The only reason for not giving 4 stars is the fact that the print is very small which makes reading more difficult than most other books
