Professor Emily Jackson adviser to Citizen's Jury on Assisted Dying

18 March 2021


The government of Jersey have appointed a Citizen's Jury on Assisted Dying, with ten sessions to be held online during Spring 2021. The Jury of twenty three residents has been selected at random and will demographically represent the Island's population. They'll be asked to answer the question, “Should assisted dying be permitted in Jersey and, if so, under what circumstances?” To support the Jury to answer this question, they'll hear from expert witnesses, both people with professional expertise on the subject and those with lived experience. Professor Emily Jackson, well-known for her expertise in medical law and ethics, is one of three independent subject matter experts  supporting the Independent Advisory Panel, to ensure that the design of the Jury sessions are balanced, robust and comprehensive.
