Landmark Cases in Medical Law

Edited by: Jonathan Herring, Jesse Wall

This new addition to Hart Publishing's Landmark Cases series brings together leading figures in the field of UK medical law to discuss a selection of the most significant cases. These are cases which either signpost a new development for medical law, illustrate an important development of the law, or signpost likely future developments of UK law. The cases are explored in their social and historical context to understand better what has influenced the development of the law. The collection provides a fascinating insight in the interaction of medical law and broader social changes to our bodies, illness, and medical professionals.
