about this item

This case book presents cases from the English speaking world, chosen to illustrate new developments and emerging trends in medical law. Two of the cases are from the first half of the 20th century (1908 and 1957), while the rest are from the 1980s and 1990s up through 2010. Cases deal with issues such as the right to die, disability law, parental rights, and parenthood for disabled people. Some of the contributors caution that landmark cases need to be interpreted against the remaining legal landscape, while other question whether the landmark case aligns with the contemporary ethics; still others use the landmark cases as a marker between the settled law and unresolved legal issues.
