Donate to the Lecretia Seales Memorial Lecture in Law Reform

Your donation supports a lecture given in honour of lawyer and law reform advocate Lecretia Seales.

In 2015, Lecretia Seales went to the high court to seek a ruling that would allow a doctor to assist her to die with her consent. Her court case initiated a national debate and helped galvanise a parliamentary inquiry into assisted dying.

The End-of-Life Choice Act was passed in November 2019, and a public referendum secured support for the Act which was implemented in 2020.
