MEDIA REVIEWS
Mason's Forensic Medicine for Lawyers remains a most valuable addition to the practitioner's law library, whether for a criminal trial; or for a civil personal injury claim... -- Sally Ramage * The Criminal Lawyer *
...a welcome, and welcoming, guide to medicine and medical issues presented by the interaction between law and what is a daunting and complex topic...The book navigates practitioners through complex issues with reference to clearly drawn diagrams and simple explanations, seemingly neither patronising nor inappropriately assuming knowledge...packs a lot in for a relatively modest price. It is a useful addition to every chambers or firm. -- Dan Bunting * UK Criminal Law Blog *
