Court of Protection Handbook: a user's guide addresses in detail the practice and processes of the Court of Protection - across the whole range of its work - in terms that are aimed not only at lawyers but also to the increasing numbers of people who either by choice or otherwise are involved in proceedings before the Court of Protection without legal help. The authors are widely recognised as leading specialists in Court of Protection work, with an unrivalled breadth of experience. Three are practitioners who have represented clients in cases involving the Mental Capacity Act up to and including the Supreme Court, and the fourth is one of the most highly respected judges of the Court of Protection. They also write, teach and train extensively on the Mental Capacity Act and the Court of Protection, and are all at the centre of development of law and procedure in the Court. The book begins with an overview of the Mental Capacity Act 2005 and the Court of Protection, before turning to a step-by-step guide through the processes of preparing and making an application, funding and representation issues, preparing for and appearing at hearings, evidence, costs, enforcement and appeals. The third edition has been fully updated and includes coverage of the Liberty Protection Safeguards introduced by the Mental Capacity (Amendment) Act 2019. Court of Protection Handbook is comprehensive yet accessible. Complex issues are explained clearly and succinctly with the helpful use of tables and diagrams.
