The Johannesburg offices of Deneys Reitz Inc. hosted a Medical Law Seminar in June this year. Several interesting papers were presented, some of which are published in the Forum section of this issue of SAJBL. That the law should be perceived as a tool towards the pursuance of justice for patients echoed throughout the seminar, both during presentations and the ensuing discussions. The notion of doctors as soft targets at the mercy of litigation-eager patients and legal practitioners did not feature in any way during the day's proceedings.
