“Medical Law and Ethics in Hong Kong is a novel work, offering a comprehensive and coherent analysis of the legal and ethical dimensions of medical practice as part of a larger whole, that of the law of torts, human rights and criminal law. Within the general text, there are many thought-provoking discussions of the ongoing debates on medical negligence, reproduction, euthanasia and patients’ rights and autonomy in law. This book will prove a valuable resource for practitioners, healthcare professionals, doctors, lawyers, and students of medical law, and I commend it to all readers.”
