An invaluable source of scholarly and practical commentary, Health Law in New Zealand is the leading account of the law relating to medical and health care law in New Zealand.

Health Law in New Zealand examines a complex area of specialisation, encompassing a broad range of personal health and public health issues that arise in the private and public sectors, and affect patients, health and legal practitioners, and the broader community.

Led by General Editors Professors Peter Skegg and Ron Paterson, Health Law in New Zealand is a collaborative treatise by leading New Zealand medico-legal experts, developed from Medical Law in New Zealand (recipient of the JF Northey Memorial Award for best law book published in 2006). Along with the significantly rewritten core chapters of the book, there are new chapters on public health, access to health care, mental health and intellectual disability, human tissue and coroners.

This text is the only detailed analysis of health law in New Zealand. It will give legal practitioners, health practitioners and managers, students and the public an authoritative account of key aspects of the law relating to health care.

Review by Jennifer M Morris and Associate Professor Marie M Bismark - Otago Law Review - (2015) Vol 14 No 1

"Health Law in New Zealand presents an authoritative and considered account of the law as it applies to the health sector in New Zealand. It both updates, and builds upon, its award-winning predecessor Medical Law in New Zealand. This volume outlines, and elucidates in context, a wide range of subject matter relating to both healthcare law and public health law in New Zealand."
