Oxford University Press

This chapter outlines John Finnis' singular contribution to the discipline of the law and ethics of medicine in the UK and beyond across almost half a century. It argues that, not least because of the powerful, arguably uniquely powerful, combination of legal and philosophical expertise that he has brought to the discipline, he should be regarded as the ‘father’ of the discipline, or at least as one of its fathers.

Keywords:   John Finnis, medical law, medical ethics, IVF, abortion, euthanasia, law and ethics
