Medical Law and Ethics: A Problem-Based Approach offers a unique and accessible treatment of legal and ethical issues in the context of professional medical treatment.

Thoughtful and challenging scenarios are used to develop a clear understanding of the complex ethical and legal considerations arising in medical practice.

In this problem-based approach, unlike many traditional commentary works in this area, readers have the opportunity to work through the issues raised in a series of patient situations. The discussion drawn from the scenarios demonstrates the relevance of key concepts in each topic and underlines their importance for both health professionals and legal practitioners. The application of leading cases and legislation is contextualised to identify their importance in appropriate decision-making and the tension for health professionals between legal and ethical behaviour is clearly presented.

Each chapter covers a different perspective in which the rights and responsibilities of medical students, health practitioners and patients are discussed. Insights are also provided into start and end of life decision-making and the ethically complex issue of organ donation.

The familiar scenario structure of the text ensures effective guidance is provided for medical and public health students and health professionals, and the engaging and topical nature of the in-depth analysis of each problem ensures law students cover all key concepts at an appropriate level.

Features
• Covers all key legal and ethical concepts essential to the practice of health professionals and their legal advisors.
• Clear, accurate discussion of complex and challenging issues made accessible to both legal and non-legal audience.
• Offers problem-based scenarios from which identification and analysis of legal and ethical issues is drawn.

This work presents an unprecedented and scholarly critique of the post-appeal review phase of the Australian criminal justice system. It offers a unique insight for students and practitioners into a new and developing area of criminal law.

The authors identify a fundamental flaw that lies at the heart of the Australian criminal justice system: an inconsistency between what constitutes a miscarriage of justice under substantive law against what constitutes a miscarriage of justice under procedural law. By examining the problematic nature of the criminal appeal rights in Australia, Sangha and Moles argue that the existing system does not comply with the rule of law provisions or Australia’s international human rights obligations.

South Australia has introduced a new statutory right of appeal and Tasmaina is considering doing the same. This represents the first substantive change to the criminal appeal rights in Australia in 100 years.

Miscarriages of Justice: Criminal Appeals and the Rule of Law in Australia explains the operation of this legislation and advances a compelling argument for its nationwide adoption. This is achieved through an examination of a number of Australian (and international) wrongful conviction cases as well as discussion of specific legal issues and the problematic area of compensation for wrongful convictions.

 

Features

     •     Authoritative analysis
     •     Examines leading Australian cases
     •     Unique text on a new and developing area of law

Restitution is one of the law’s few remaining commons, largely untouched by statute.

Fifty years ago restitution was a wilderness, an apparent ‘miscellany of disparate categories’ through which litigant, judge and student trudged holding a compass marked ‘implied contract’ at its four points. The landscape of the modern Australian law of restitution, however, is complex. The topic of restitution addressed by the authors includes doctrines responding to different and/or additional policies as well as gain-based remedies appurtenant to wrongs with their juridical source outside unjust enrichment, which is only one of the bases for restitution.

In this third edition, the content has been revised and updated. Chapter 3 (Want of Title) has been substantially updated and Chapter 24 (Change of Position) has been completely rewritten.

This book is essential reading for members of the judiciary, barristers and solicitors Australia wide, as well as students of commercial law, equity and remedies.

Comments from reviewers :

'An excellent, accessible account of the modern law of restitution in Australia which will prove to be of enormous benefit to practitioners in Australia and which can be read with profit by all lawyers with an interest in this fascinating subject' [(1996) 112 Law Quarterly Review 691].

'A detailed masterly exposition, with meticulous cross-referencing' ([1996] Restitution Law Review 147).
