PEAT Outcome - relevant legal knowledge

OBJECTIVES

It took many years for the concept of a Living Will to receive statutory recognition in England and Wales (there is still no statutory recognition of a Living Will in Scotland). However, that controversy may now be considered to be largely a thing of the past having been replaced by the much more controversial and divisive concept of assisted dying. This Seminar will consider:-

  • The differences between a Living Will and the concept of assisted dying
  • The historical development of both of these concepts
  • Living Wills in a Scottish context
  • What has happened elsewhere in the world in relation to assisted dying?
  • The current position in United Kingdom in relation to assisted dying

PARTICIPANTS

his seminar will be of interest to private client practitioners, particularly those having an interest in Law of the Elderly.
