The information on this website is believed to be correct at the time of publication.   We shall take steps to ensure that it is kept up-to-date, though this cannot be guaranteed.

In particular, the law in the UK relating to assisted suicide and its potential effect upon inheritance provisions currently requires both reform and clarification.   On this website we have sought to describe the present position and the dilemmas within it.   We cannot accept liability, however, if any of those opinions prove to be incorrect or if any elements of the legal position prove to be different from our interpretation.   Readers will need to seek their own professional advice in those respects.

Assisting a suicide remains an offence within the UK.   Encouraging a suicide can also be seen in the same light.   For the sake of clarity, therefore, we should emphasise that the contents of this website should be used for information only.   No part of it should be regarded as having been, intentionally or otherwise, any form of advocacy in favour of such action.
