This book explores the scope, application and role of medical law, regulatory norms and ethics, and addresses key challenges introduced by contemporary advances in biomedical research and healthcare. While mindful of national developments, the handbook supports a global perspective in its approach to medical law.

Contributors include leading scholars in both medical law and ethics, who have developed specially commissioned pieces in order to present a critical overview and analysis of the current state of medical law and ethics. Each chapter offers comprehensive coverage of longstanding and traditional topics in medical law and ethics, and provides dynamic insights into contemporary and emerging issues in this heavily debated field. Topics covered include:

Bioethics, health and human rights

Medical liability

Law and emerging health technologies

Public health law

Personalized medicine

The law and ethics of access to medicines in developing countries

Medical research in the genome era

Emerging legal and ethical issues in reproductive technologies

This advanced level reference work will prove invaluable to legal practitioners, scholars, students and researchers in the disciplines of law, medicine, genetics, dentistry, theology, and medical ethics.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"This impressive and much needed volume contains a truly world class collection of scholars. And it provides a perfect balance of cutting edge analysis of topical issues and coverage of the fundamentals. I am certain that this new handbook will emerge as essential reading for anyone interested in medical law and ethics."
Tim Caulfield, Research Director, Health Law Institute, University of Alberta.

"This handbook brings together an impressive number of experts in the field. Its extensive and analytical coverage of issues in medical law and ethics will make it an extremely valuable resource. In particular, its coverage of issues of concern to developing countries is to be welcomed, and helps to make it stand out from other books in this area."
Sheila McLean, Emeritus Professor of Law and Ethics in Medicine, University of Glasgow, UK.

"Chapters from scholars working in 11 different countries give 'The Handbook of Medical Law and Ethics' a unique - and uniquely useful - perspective on the host of issues arising as medicine and the biosciences intersect with both law and ethics."
Hank Greely, Professor at Stanford University Law School and Director of the Center for Law and the Biosciences.
