Abstract

The dynamic interaction of medicine and law continues to raise difficult, cutting-edge challenges for practitioners, scholars, and decision makers in both fields. The process of accommodating new medical problems, techniques, and solutions within the traditional doctrines and processes of the law involved many new or developing issues during the past year. This article will consider the state of the law, as reflected in recent decisions and legislation, in two particularly important medical-legal areas: AIDS and proof of causation.
