Durable Power of Attorney For Health Care Decisions
Recently a patron asked for a sample living will form. It took me a while to find one (PDF), so I am posting a link here for others who are interested.

The Nevada Center for Ethics and Health Policy at the University of Nevada Reno hosts NVLivingWill.com. The Forms/Downloads section includes a form and planning documents (in English, Spanish and a translation prepared by the Filipino Outreach Committee) as well as a link to the Nevada Secretary of State's Living Will Lockbox. For those of you who like doing things online, NVLivingWill.com also includes a free (registration required) online durable power of attorney for health care generator.

For more information on living wills, the ABA Commission on Law and Aging prepared a Consumer's Tool Kit for Health Care Advance Planning.

Supreme Court Nominations Research Guides
Georgetown Law Library has a complete guide to the Supreme Court nominations process, including links to information on nominees from Harriet E. Miers to Elena Kagan (with Roberts, Alito and Sotomayor in between).

Additionally, the Library of Congress has a guide to Supreme Court nominees, as well as one with citations on Kagan.
