Medical Law and Ethics is a fascinating area to study dealing with some of the most contested and controversial issues of our time; assisted dying, abortion, and embryo research to name three. New technologies such as stem cell research, face transplants and pre-implantation genetic testing have attracted considerable media and public interest. In order to study medical law at this level, it is essential to also consider the ethical issues which underpin questions about how we should regulate controversial medical practices.
