Publish Date/Time:

In the New York Times of October 15, Pitt Law Professor Alan Meisel was cited and quoted in a discussion of the right to die.  Responding to a column called "How to Die," Professor of Law Emeritus Yale Kamisar of the University of Michigan -- who is himself a well-known authority on the right to die -- used Professor Meisel's work to make his point.  "There is wide agreement among physicians, lawyers, medical ethicists and judges that  the right of a competent person to forgo life-sustaining medical treatment is, to quote a leading commentator, Alan Meisel, 'virtually absolute.'"
