This chapter explores legal questions surrounding organ and tissue transplantation. We consider the Human Tissue Act 2004 which regulates transplantation in England and Northern Ireland, setting out and analysing the law in relation to both live donation and cadaver transplantation. We examine responses to the shortage of donated organs and consider the significant change to the law in Wales relating to cadaver transplantation in the Human Transplantation (Wales) Act 2013.
