    Health law, scholarship and forensic expertise: complications and challenges
    Freckelton, Ian ( 2016)
    The body of work submitted traverses a range of published scholarship on the intersections between the law and other disciplines, principally within the health domain. It grapples with dilemmas posed by how scholarly misconduct is responded to by the law, including fabrication and misrepresentation of research data. It also deals with a cross-section of health conditions that are challenging mental health assessors by their forensic requirements. It tracks the evolution of health law as an area of scholarly endeavour and aspects of mental health law, including by reference to therapeutic jurisprudence. It also engages with medicinal cannabis law reform, controversial issues in relation to regulation of health practitioners, accountability in relation to expert evidence, and modern developments in coronial law and policy.
