Medical Law and Ethics covers not only the core legal principles,
key cases, and statutes that govern medical law, but also explores
the key ethical debates and dilemmas that exist in the field to
ensure that the law is firmly embedded within its context.
Carefully constructed features highlight these debates, drawing out
the European angles, religious beliefs, and feminist perspectives
which influence legal regulations. Other features such as 'a shock
to the system', 'public opinion' and 'reality check' introduce
further sociological aspects, contributing to the lively and
engaging manner with which the subject is approached.
