My fellow editors and I are very pleased to announce that the second edition of the Court of Protection Handbook is now available from the LAG bookstore (in paperback and eBook). The new edition has been rewritten to take account of the amendments made by the Court of Protection (Amendment) Rules 2015, the Case Management Pilot that started in September 2016 and the Transparency Pilot that started in January 2016, along with coverage of the Re X procedure for judicial authorisation of deprivation of liberty. It also includes new practical guidance for improving the participation of P.
The website has also been thoroughly updated to include a whole new suite of – free – downloadable precedent orders (including those used by the judiciary in the Case Management Pilot). It also, as before, serves an updater for the book. As ever, feedback is very welcome, to firstname.lastname@example.org.
