As a practical guide, the book covers many topics. Chapter One provides a general overview of the law and its underpinnings and examines the differences and similarities between medicine and the law.

For example, law tends to "reason from the general to the particular, and medicine from the particular to the general" (at 11). Medicine needs to be administered in an environment of immediacy, while the law rarely moves so quickly.
