In October 2013, Medical Malpractice and Compensation for Medical Injuries, edited by Richard Wright and Ken Oliphant, Director of the Institute for European Tort Law in the Austrian Academy of Sciences, was published by De Gruyter, Berlin/Boston.  The papers in this collection are drawn from a symposium held in Vienna in December 2010 that was organized by the Institute for European Tort Law and the Chicago-Kent Law Review, in collaboration with the European Centre of Tort and Insurance Law.  The conference drew together legal experts from 14 national or regional systems across six continents (Austria, Brazil, Canada, China, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, New Zealand, Poland, Scandinavia, South Africa, the United Kingdom and the United States). The collection examines the issues in a uniquely global context, demonstrating the breadth of approaches currently taken around the world and revealing key areas of tension and the likely direction of future developments. Wherever possible, the analysis is supported by reference to empirical data.  The country specific papers were initially published in the Chicago-Kent Law Review (volume 86, issue 3 and volume 87, issue 1).  Some of them were updated for this publication, which also contains a short introduction by the editors and a concluding chapter of comparative observations by Ken Oliphant.
