The transplantation of human organs is a critical medical procedure that saves countless lives each year. However, it also raises significant legal and ethical issues that must be carefully navigated. This dissertation examines the complex landscape of legal and ethical concerns surrounding organ transplantation, including consent, allocation, and commercialization. It explores the regulatory frameworks governing organ donation and transplantation in different jurisdictions, highlighting variations and commonalities. Ethical dilemmas such as the balance between donor autonomy and recipient need, the ethics of living versus deceased donation, and the impact of socio-economic factors on access to transplantation are analyzed. Through a comparative study of international practices, this dissertation aims to provide a comprehensive understanding of the challenges and propose recommendations for addressing these issues in a manner that upholds both legal standards and ethical principles.
