This popular major work provides a detailed and authoritative guide to the enhanced jurisdiction with a similar style and format to The Family Court Practice and Civil Court Service.

Written by a team of lawyers involved in the implementation of the Mental Capacity Act 2005, Court of Protection Practice provides valuable procedural guidance for all judges hearing cases in the Court of Protection.

Court of Protection Practice retains its well-established format as the leading court reference work governing this fast-developing jurisdiction, with a status akin to its sister publication The Red Book. This new edition has been further enhanced and updated throughout, thus ensuring that practitioners have all the latest developments at their fingertips.
