Professor Anne-Maree Farrell, Director of the Centre for Health Law and Society, La Trobe Law School, has recently published a book, Health Law: Frameworks and Context, with Cambridge University Press (2017). Professor Farrell has co-authored the book with Professor John Devereux (University of Queensland), Professor Isabel Karpin (University of Techology Sydney) and Associate Professor Penelope Weller (RMIT University).
In Health Law: Frameworks and Context, the authors adopt a theoretically informed and principles-based approach to examining health law in its ethical, social and legal contexts. The book moves beyond traditional medical law frameworks to provide a broader contextual understanding of the way in which law intersects with health. Written by respected academics in the field, it takes this rich and challenging field to a new level of analysis. It will appeal to students, lawyers and academic scholars, and will be an essential text for anyone 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.
The Centre for Health Law and Society will be hosting a book launch to celebrate the publication of Health Law: Frameworks and Context. Details to be published shortly.
