Welcome to the second edition of The Healthcare Law Review. The Review provides an introduction to healthcare economies and their legal frameworks in 17 jurisdictions, with new contributions from Japan, Korea and Finland. These new chapters, together with updates to the jurisdictions previously covered in the first edition, only serve to emphasise that this is a constantly changing environment. While hugely diverse, it is possible to discern common challenges and similar approaches in very different countries.
