Review from previous edition: "A comprehensive and authoritative guide to the present law ... any practising or academic lawyer would benefit from access to a copy."
--Cambridge Law Journal
"An outstanding piece of scholarship ... high in quality throughout, well internally cross-referenced and very well written ... By some distance it is the best textbook in the area."
--Journal of Law and Medicine
"This latest text is useful to the Practitioner because it considers in depth difficult issues... the layout is clear with separate parts, chapters and paragraphs for ease of reference. There is a wealth of footnotes and a comprehensive table of cases and statutes with an excellent index. The
test of any substantial law text such as this is whether it becomes a leading work in the subject. This seems assured for Principles of Medical Law"
--Jarlath Spellman, Barrister, The Bar Review
"It is a tribute to the merits of this book that one, while consulting it regularly, scarcely noticed that six years had lapsed since its first arrival...This book remains a monumental work, comprehensive in its coverage and apparently seamless in its presentation, thanks to skilful
editing...For anyone wishing to gain a sound academic understanding of medical law, this remains the work to turn to."
--B Mahendra, New Law Journal
