Court of Protection Made Clear: A User's Guide (revised 1st ed)

Cornerstone on ASB

The essential, plain English guide to Court of Protection law & practice.

Revised 1st edition out now - updated to reflect the 2017 Rules & Practice Directions

​Court of Protection Made Clear: A User's Guide aims to help everyone involved in Court of Protection proceedings.

The book deliberately sets out to bridge the gap between the people using the Court and the professionals who advise them so that all involved can make fully informed decisions about money and welfare at what can be a stressful time.

Using plain English, it demystifies the law, language and procedure and is enhanced by a raft of invaluable flowcharts, tables and model documents that help put the guidance into practice.

While accessible to the non-lawyer the book also provides the professional legal adviser with a quick, clear first point of reference.

This revised 1st edition has been fully updated to reflect the new Court of Protection Rules and Practice Directions released and in force from late 2017.
