Research Handbooks in Health and Medical Law series

As medical advances continue to push the boundaries of human health, questions as to how the law regulates developing medical technologies and patients’ relationships with treatment providers, have become increasingly vital. The Research Handbooks in Health and Medical Law series takes a holistic view of the field, addressing current and sometimes controversial legal issues, in order to provide high-level reference works for academic researchers, postgraduate students, practising lawyers and policy makers.

Each state-of-the-art Research Handbook comprises specially-commissioned chapters from leading academics and practitioners, as well as emerging experts, in order to provide a truly panoramic perspective on the themes discussed. Topics explored include core concepts such as informed consent, medical ethics and patient’s rights, as well as nuanced examination into how health and medical law interacts with areas such as human rights, regulation and governance, and environmental law.
