On February 7, Leslie Francis, Professor of Law at the University of Utah S.J. Quinney College of Law, will present at a symposium hosted by the Journal of Law and Medicine at the Michigan State University College of Law. 

The symposium, titled “Living with Terminal Illness: Should Adolescent Minors Make Decisions at the End of Their Lives?”,  examines whether mature children’s voices should be included in decisions involving their own end-of-life medical care. Panelists from varying perspectives will discuss problems, conflicts, and considerations regarding medical decision-making by minors.

 In addition to Francis, other presenters include Bruce Jennings, Center for Humans & Nature, Yale School of Public Health; Molly J. Walker Wilson, Saint Louis University School of Law
Center for Interdisciplinary Study of Law; and Dr. Maxwell Gregg Bloche, Georgetown–John Hopkins Joint Program in Law and Public Health, among others.
