End of Life Law in Australia is a website that provides accurate, practical and relevant information to help people navigate the challenging legal issues that can arise with end of life decision-making. The website is an initiative of the Australian Centre for Health Law Research. It is designed to be used by patients, families, health and legal practitioners, the media, policymakers and the broader community to access information about Australian laws relating to death, dying and decision-making at the end of life.

These laws are very complex, particularly in Australia where the law differs between states and territories and where areas of uncertainty about the law exist. The website provides a broad introduction to these laws and includes information on recent developments in the end of life area.
