For those of you that are trying to decide on a textbook for a Spring Health Law course, you might want to check out the new Health Care Law and Ethics books by Hall, Bobinski and Orentlicher. Aspen Publishers has divided the longer text book into a three part set of shorter books that may be used for health law seminars and other health law classes that do not require the comprehensive coverage provided by the complete text. The three texts are: Bioethics and Public Health Law, Medical Liability and Treatment Relationships and The Law of Health Care Finance and Regulation. As you are well aware, the Health lLaw: Cases, Materials and Problems by Furrow, Greaney, Johnson, Jost and Schwartz has been published for a number of years in a series of shorter topical books. Now, you have more choices in textbooks and can even mix and match your health law text selections. Of course, there exist a variety of other health law texts on the market and I have tried a number of them in the quest to keep myself fresh and well-educated on a wide variety of health law topics and viewpoints. Best of luck with your selection!
