Media and Postal Communications
In stark contrast to the telecommunications industry in Canada, which is highly regulated, the newspaper media is almost entirely unregulated. Halsbury's Laws of Canada - Media and Postal Communications examines the laws impacting the print newspaper industry, as well as the regulation of the delivery of communications through the postal system.
Topics covered include:
Medicine and Health
For lawyers, the issues that surround the medical system can have an impact that extends far beyond the hospital or doctor's office. Whether in a professional or personal capacity, the healthcare system impacts virtually all professionals and their clients. Malpractice, professional misconduct, fertility treatments, informed consent, the confidentiality of health records, living wills, are all topics that clients may bring to their lawyer.
When questions arise, out of a file or as part of general client interaction, the prudent lawyer can turn with confidence to Halsbury's Laws of Canada - Medicine and Health. This comprehensive national narrative of the law relating to health and medical care in Canada provides a concise statement of the legislation and judicial rulings that govern this crucial area of universal concern.
