Court of Protection: An Update

Court of Protection: An Update

This paper looks at case law developing in the Court of Protection, including the Court's welfare jurisdiction and the difference between restriction of freedom and deprivation of liberty.

It aims to remind public lawyers of the existence of the Court of Protection, to explain some of the developments taking place there, and to show how its jurisprudence crossfertilises to other areas.
