Winner of the Minty Medico-Legal Society prize for best medico-legal book 2010
“Medical Law and Ethics intends to explain and examine the law of England and Wales as it addresses medical practice, and this it achieves with aplomb….Scholarly, comprehensive and well referenced, Shaun Pattinson’s style ensures that the book is eminently readable throughout."

McAlister (2015) 15 Med LI 196:
“Pattinson’s writing style is engaging and allows the readers to access some complex medico-legal principles and theoretical concepts with ease. His impressive knowledge and experience of medico-legal dilemmas comes across well, and Pattinson imparts them with great skill.”

Morgan (2007) Legal Studies 155:
“Pattinson has successfully woven a tapestry of often complex legal and ethical discourses into a manageable text.”
“I found Pattinson’s book to be more useful and insightful [in comparison to Herring’s book].”

Smith (2006) 14 Med L Rev 442:
“It is a clear, well-researched text that provides a much greater emphasis on medical ethics than is standard in the field."
