Voluntary Assisted Dying Submission

Voluntary Assisted Dying Submission

By Administrative Law and Human Rights Section

Health Human Rights 


The LIV made this submission to the Expert Ministerial Advisory Panel on the Victorian Government’s model framework. The LIV acknowledges the disparate views on voluntary assisted dying within the legal profession, its member base and the broader community.

The LIV does not have a position on the moral arguments for or against voluntary assisted dying. Rather, the LIV seeks to ensure the proposed legislation has the necessary legislative safeguards so that any such laws, regulations and guidelines are clear, accessible and adequately protect vulnerable patients, registered doctors, nurses and any health practitioners who are acting within the law, including those who do not wish to participate in voluntary assisted dying.
