On 14.07.2022 the 5th Göttingen Symposium on Medical Law took place in the rooms of the historic SUB in Göttingen. The theme of the symposium was "Advance Care Planning in Psychiatry". This controversial topic was first examined from various perspectives and then enriched with questions and contributions from the audience. Especially the different professional backgrounds of the speakers, but also of the participants, rounded off the symposium to a successful event.
