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 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.

Court of Protection Handbook is comprehensive yet accessible. Complex issues are explained clearly and succinctly with the helpful use of tables and other diagrams. This edition includes helpful flowcharts on property and affairs, health and welfare and DOLS applications. More practical guidance has been provided on facilitating the role of 'P' and the role of experts in the Court with contributions from a psychiatrist and an independent consultant nurse.

The main text is supported by a wealth of supplementary materials: legislation, the consolidated Rules and Pilot Rules, guidance, sample statements and letters and useful addresses.

There is an accompanying website  courtofprotectionhandbook.com with updates on practice and procedure and additional legislation, guidance and resources.
