Description

Cost: Free

Alex Ruck Keene, Barrister at 39 Essex Chambers and author of the Mental Capacity Law and Policy blog, and Emma Harrison Senior Solicitor from Devon County Council look at how the new Liberty Protection Safeguards will work in practice when they replace the Deprivations of Liberty Safeguards (DOLS) next year.

Together, the panel will explore:

  • In which key aspects the LPS regime differs from the DOLS and in which regards will it remain the same?
  • The operation of the ‘acid test’ established in the Cheshire West decision of the Supreme Court following the introduction of the LPS.
  • Whether the LPS will streamline the process or create more work for lawyers and health and social care professionals?
  • What litigation is likely to arise to clarify the operation of the LPS?

Join us on 28th September 2021 to ensure you’re prepared for when the new Liberty Protection Safeguards will work in practice.
