Whose life is it anyway? Some thoughts on assisted dying and the law.

Sunday 21st July  7.15 for 7.30pm

Hop Blossom Pub, Long Garden Walk, Farnham GU9 7HX

Lewis Marks is a barrister with nearly forty years of experience ranging from murder, rape and (sewage) spillage, to multi-billion-pound divorce cases and a great deal in between. He is an advocate for furthering sensible reform of the law. 

A long-standing supporter of Dignity in Dying and a life-long atheist, he has a particular interest in the Human Rights aspects of assisted dying.

Lewis will discuss the law on suicide in the UK and in countries in which assisted dying is legal, and proposals for reforms.

His talk will also include personal thoughts arising from the recent death of his father, world insulin expert Professor Vincent Marks who was a founding member of Farnham Humanists.

Non-members £3. Members free. Drinks are available at the Pub

Lewis’ father Professor Vincent Marks born 10 June 1930; died 6 November 2023
