Masonís Forensic Medicine for Lawyers 6ed (2015)  $205.00 

By Helen Whitewell, Alexander Kolar, Katy Thorne & Paul Harvey

Mason's Forensic Medicine for Lawyers covers all aspects of the relationship between forensic medicine and the law including an overview of general issues relating to medical ethics, criminal liability, negligence and the regulation of the medical profession.

The Court of Appeal and the Criminal Procedure Rules have dramatically changed what is expected of experts and the presentation of expert evidence to the Courts since the previous edition in 2008. The book considers each key stage from the reporting of the death to the investigation and diagnosis of the cause of death, detailing medical and legal considerations that must be taken into account. Each chapter begins with an explanation of basic medical issues including relevant anatomy, identifying controversies in the various forensic areas.

The sixth edition has been rewritten and restructured to provide a more analytical approach, with new chapters on the important areas of sexual offences and DNA, and expanded chapters on post-mortem examination to include explanation of the practicalities of an autopsy from the medical perspective.

The sixth edition includes:

  • An introduction to relevant clinical terms, the systems of the body and autopsy procedure
  • Ahapters on the main areas of forensic medicine including injuries from assaults, firearms, asphyxia, water and fire
  • Specialist chapters on on-accident injury to children, sexual offences, odontology, toxicology and the care of detainees
  • All the relevant statutory and common law offences
  • The Coroners and Justice Act 2009 in conjunction with the relevant Rules and Guidance
  • The Criminal and Civil Procedure rules and relevant case law on the role and duties of experts
  • Primary and secondary legislation relating to care of detainees and investigation of deaths in custody (eg Police and Criminal Evidence Act 1984)
