Exceptional in the clarity of its explanations, Medical Law and Ethics not only provides coverage of all the important cases, statutes and legal principles but also looks at different ethical viewpoints, including feminist, religious, critical and sociological. Readers are therefore given a firm grounding in the legal principles of medical law, whilst also being encouraged to understand and think about the tensions and debates within its wider social context. In this second edition, boxed features place more emphasis on EU perspectives, and further information on 'hot topics' such as medical genetics and prenatal intelligence, PGD and tissue typing is provided. Detailed and analytical enough for both undergraduate and postgraduate law students, and clear enough to be used by students approaching the subject from a non-legal background, this book gives a user-friendly and thorough introduction to medical law and ethics. Key features Boxes throughout the text highlight different ethical viewpoints, EU perspectives, key cases and real-life examples of the law in action. Each chapter ends with a clear summary of the present law Further reading lists and end-of-chapter questions help students to further their studies and test their knowledge. Online Resource Centre Accompanied by an Online Resource Centre providing regular updates to the law and weblinks.About the Author:
