The second edition of this well-received book from 2015, which was named 'Legal Book of the Year' at the Irish Law Awards in 2016, takes account of recent developments in the area of medical negligence and childbirth.

With contributions from world-leading experts in obstetrics, gynaecology, neonatology and other related specialties, this book provides legal practitioners with the knowledge they need to advise on complex birth-related injuries.
