Abstract

This Comment looks at the difficult issues surrounding living wills, and how courts or legislatures will treat cases where no living will exists. The Comment focuses on a series of New Jersey cases, and concludes with a suggested comprehensive statute which would cover loopholes left open by the current Illinois statutory scheme. The Comment is followed by two appendices which set out the text of the original Illinois Living Will Act and the 1988 changes to the Illinois Living Will Act.
