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.

The Court of Protection Practice retains its well-established format as the leading court reference work governing this fast-developing jurisdiction, with a status akin to its sister publication The Red Book. This new edition has been further enhanced and updated throughout, thus ensuring that practitioners have all the latest developments at their fingertips.

What’s New for 2016?

  • Latest Rules, Practice Directions and Court Forms
  • New Procedural Guide on Statutory Wills
  • International matters section completely revised with an explanatory Chapter
  • Full coverage of the Scottish incapacity jurisdiction through a discrete Chapter and an Appendix containing statutory material and guidance
  • Anticipatory Chapters added for Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland pending new legislation
As the jurisdiction evolves, it is vital for practitioners to have up-to-date information in order to act efficiently and accurately for clients.
