The Right to Die

'Burning Issue' public lecture


It is legal in the UK for a doctor to give terminally ill patients potentially life-shortening doses of drugs like morphine in order to relieve their pain, but to do so with the intention of hastening death could lead to a charge of murder. Emily Jackson examines the issues, the contradictions and the confusion around assisted suicide and how a growing belief in the importance of self-determination is likely to affect the way in which many of us view the end of our lives.

Emily Jackson is a professor of law at LSE and deputy chair of the Human Fertilisation and Embryology Authority.

Come and be part of a studio audience for this new and interactive lecture series. The lectures include audience debate and are being filmed on 12 and 13 May for television . The full list of Burning Issue lectures is available to view. Free food and drink will be provided in the interval between lectures.
