Lord Rodger’s Mental Health Law

(p.51) 7 Lord Rodger’s Mental Health Law
Judge and Jurist

Baroness Hale of Richmond

Oxford University Press

This chapter presents two stories about Alan Rodger's work in the field of mental health law. Both stories show Alan's deep appreciation of how both domestic law and the European Convention work. Perhaps they also show a traditional view of what psychiatry is for, putting the protection of the health and safety, not only of the patient but also of other people, somewhat ahead of the patient's right to liberty.

Keywords:   mental health, judgments, domestic law, European Convention, psychiatry
