No5 Barrister Authors Chapters in Leading Medical Law Practitioner’s Book

Mon, 17 Jan 2011

The head of No5’s Administrative and Public Law and specialist healthcare law barrister, David Lock, is now a published author.
 
He has written chapters as part of the new edition of the leading healthcare law book, “Kennedy and Grubb: Principles of Medical Law”. The book is recognised to be the definitive text on medical law, and is relied upon by Judges, lawyers and doctors to explain the law this complex area.
 
David Lock was asked to contribute chapters on the law relating to consent to treatment, one of which he wrote alone and another jointly with Sir James Munby, a Judge in the Court of Appeal.
 
The book is published by Oxford University Press. Head of No5 chambers, Paul Bleasdale QC said “It is a great honour for any barrister to be asked to write chapters for such a prestigious book. Being an author of Kennedy and Grubb shows that David is one of the leading healthcare lawyers in the country”.
 
David Lock said “As a barrister in healthcare law, I have used Kennedy and Grubb frequently in practice. I was therefore delighted to be asked to write chapters as part of the new edition. It allowed me the chance to read around the subject and to understand how healthcare law operates in other countries”.
