Most of the reviews in this year's collection are pertinent only to forensic medicine but four may be useful to internists and other practitioners: the discussion of legal implications of epilepsy (including implications for driver's licensing), by Pesper; the summary of the Medical Insurance Feasibility Study, by Boyden; the comments on informed consent, by Bailey; advice on prophylaxis against medical negligence (particularly with regard to prescription writing, telephone prescribing, and legal implications of the drug package insert), from Ficana.
