“Community DoL” guidance updated

Along with Tor Butler-Cole QC and Neil Allen, I have updated our guide to “community deprivation of liberty” – i.e. judicial authorisation of deprivation of liberty by the Court of Protection. The update incorporates both the guidance given by Senior Judge Hilder as to applications relating to 16/17 year olds, and the broader guidance given by the judges as to “dos and dont’s” at a workshop convened by Senior Judge Hilder in May 2022.  The updated guidance can be found here.
