Court of Protection

Court Of Protection

 

Learning Outcomes Teal      Book Teal 

Court of Protection work is on the increase and becoming more complex as more clients become mentally compromised. Many individuals who fail to make LPAs fall within this jurisdiction. This presents a practice development opportunity for private client lawyers who need to offer a service to clients in order to meet the demand for Court of Protection applications.

As well as marketing and practice opportunities, this course includes sample forms and a case law update, and will equip practitioners with the skills to tackle the range of applications with confidence.

Recent Court of Protection statistics show that a large proportion of applications submitted contained errors. This course therefore looks at basic applications as well as wider applications with the intention of reducing the occurrence of such errors in the future.

It will also cover:

  • The courts’ jurisdiction and functions of the Office of Public Guardian
  • When to apply to the Court for a welfare/financial decision
  • The application and procedure for the appointment of a Deputy
  • The application and procedure for Single Orders
  • Sale and purchase of Property
  • Trustees' applications
  • Gifts, settlements and statutory wills
  • Making decisions as a Deputy
  • Making the most of state support
  • Getting paid
