Panel discussion

At this free event, hosted by the ACT Law Society and sponsored by the ANU College of Law, a panel of experts will examine the choices and decisions for palliative care currently available to residents of the ACT, and look ahead to the future of end of life care and the legal and medical implications of change.

From the ACT Law Society president:

“The Law Society is holding this forum as a gift to the ACT community.

The aim of this event is to bring the wider community into a discussion about the difficult issue of end of life choices. The forum will allow people to ask questions and listen to thoughtful expert information from speakers with a range of legal, medical, and social expertise.

One of our fundamental values as a profession is to help give a voice to the most vulnerable among us — to work for the public good even when it might cause controversy. We encourage any person with an interest in this topic to attend. With your help, we can continue this important discussion.”

Sarah Avery, PRESIDENT, ACT LAW SOCIETY
