Medical Law Review


The Medical Law Review is established as an authoritative source of reference for academics, lawyers, legal and medical practitioners, law students and anyone interested in health care and the law. Primarily the Medical Law Review presents articles of international interest which provide thorough analyses and comment on the wide range of topical issues that are fundamental to this area of law. In addition it carries two commentary sections. The first concentrates on UK law and includes case reports and legislation summaries followed by analytical
interpretation of the impact of new developments in medical law. The second section concentrates on recent medico-legal developments in the US, the Commonwealth and Europe. The Review also carries book reviews of relevant publications.

Footnotes, where present, are bi-directional. This journal, along with other available UK law journals, can be searched in the All UK Law Journals file.
