The medical law addresses a broad ambit of problems which includes determining remedies when patients refuse treatment or are unable to consent to treatment, measures to respond to the increasing number of claims for medical negligence and the rights of children in respect of treatment. The medical law also needs to settle issues whether there should be an automatic right to abortion, when organs may be removed from dead patients and whether to legalise the practice of euthanasia. Medical Law is not just a set of rules; it also involves questions of morals. Besides the ethical theories, there are certain moral principles which play a significant role in medical law and ethics, such as, the principles of autonomy, beneficence (to do good), non male-efficience (to do no harm) and justice (to treat people fairly). Nowadays, medical law is acknowledged as a separate branch of law but its procedure is based on the wider context of the legal system – civil and criminal. While most disputes under medical laws would come under the purview of civil law, sometimes the criminal law would also be relevant. Some acts may call for both civil and criminal liability. Patients may bring negligence claim against negligence in treatment on the basis of a conditional fee agreement.
