Abstract

Case comment on R. (on the application of Nicklinson) v Ministry of Justice 2014 UKSC 38; 2015 A.C. 657 (SC). The case dealt mainly with the following two matters: the prohibition of assisted suicide in the UK, under the 1961 Suicide Act, and whether such prohibition is compatible with UK obligations under the European Convention on Human Rights (ECHR)3; and the legality of the policy issued by the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) relating to the prosecution of individuals who have allegedly assisted a suicide.
