Mental Health and Court of Protection Legal Update webinar

14:00 – 15:00

We would be delighted if you could join us at our next Mental Health and Court of Protection Legal Update webinar which is being held on 02 February 2022 via Microsoft Teams. There have been some interesting recent legal developments in this area and topics to be covered during the session will include:

  • The Mental Health Act & The MHA White Paper

    We will provide a general update including some important recent case law relating to s.17(3) in the context of deprivation of liberty, and s.117 aftercare
  • The Court of Protection, Mental Capacity Act and LPS

    We will look at the recent cases flowing from the court, including the response to Covid, the pressures on the system and the recent decisions regarding capacity to engage in sexual relations. We will also touch upon the latest developments in LPS and the next steps to implementation
  • Human Rights

    The Government has opened the consultation on the Human Rights Act review (closing 03 March 2022). We will examine the likely direction of travel and the headlines to be aware of to better inform any organisational response to this important call for evidence.

The webinar will be chaired by Becky Fitzpatrick and Chris Stark, both partners within Browne Jacobson’s Health and Social Care advisory team.
