Law Commission’s Deprivation of Liberty Consultation now open

The wait is finally over, and the Law Commission’s consultation is now open.   We will have an article by Tim Spencer-Lane (the lead lawyer at the Commission on this project) in our Mental Capacity Law Newsletter out tomorrow, 8 July, but in the interim, you can find an outline of the consultation and the vitally important consultation paper here.  You have until 2 November to respond, and I urge you to do so.  Only by using this opportunity to tap into your expertise to get this law right can we make the past few years actually mean something sensible in terms of the allocation of scarce resources to the protection and empowerment of highly vulnerable individuals.
