This popular major work provides a detailed and authoritative guide to the enhanced jurisdiction with a similar style and format to The Family Court Practice and Civil Court Service.

Written by a team of lawyers involved in the implementation of the Mental Capacity Act 2005, Court of Protection Practice provides valuable procedural guidance for all judges hearing cases in the Court of Protection.

As the jurisdiction evolves, it is also vital for practitioners to have up-to-date information in order to act efficiently and accurately for clients.
