A reminder that today, 1 July, is a big day at COP Towers because:
(1) The remainder of the first round of COPR rule changes come into force today: an unofficial compilation of the amendments with a commentary by me can be found here;
(2) New Practice Directions are in force to accompany the Rules, available here;
(3) New forms are available here (do not misled by the fact some of them suggest that they are the old versions on the link – they are the new forms as can been seen in the top left hand corner of each: check it has 07.15 below the relevant COP1 etc number); and
(4) New LPA forms are available here.
My fellow authors and I are hard at work providing updates here as to how the changes affect the text of the Court of Protection Handbook, so keep checking back over the next week or so for more.
