As I can’t roam the country at the moment bothering people about capacity at the moment, I’m going to do a series of short ‘webinars’ from my shed about key aspects of capacity law. I’m starting with mental capacity itself:
This session does not cover assessment of capacity in the context of Covid-19, but rather focuses on the key aspects of the law so as to help people feel legally confident. For more on how to apply the law in the adverse conditions applying at present, see my resources page about the MCA and COVID-19 here, and also the webinar and FAQs I’ve recorded with other members of the Court of Protection team at 39 Essex Chambers here.
Boring but necessary caveat: nothing in this constitutes legal advice.
