Court of Protection Handbook: A User's Guide
There are many books which deal with the Mental Capacity Act 2005, and there are also a number of books which deal with the Court of Protection. However, this is the first book to set out to address in detail the practice and processes of the court – across the whole range of its work – in terms that are aimed not solely at lawyers who are advising those bringing or responding to applications but also to the increasing numbers of people who either by choice or otherwise are involved in proceedings before the Court of Protection without the help of lawyers or specialist advisers.
