Summary Drawing upon a range of disciplinary perspectives, Health Law: Frameworks and Context adopts a theoretically informed and principles-based approach to examining health law. Appealing to students and academic scholars alike, the text moves beyond traditional medical law frameworks to provide a broader contextual understanding of the way in which law intersects with health. A clear and accessible style of writing combined with a sophisticated and nuanced approach takes this rich and challenging field to a new level of analysis. Written by respected academics within the field, Health Law: Frameworks and Context is an essential text for scholars and students looking to grasp the fundamental concepts of this rapidly expanding area of law, as well as those who wish to deepen their knowledge and understanding of health law in Australia and internationally
