  • Explains the core concept of "best interests" of a person covered by the Act and how it should be established
  • Outlines the role and responsibilities of the Court of Protection and explains its growing body of case law
  • Explains the scope of lasting powers of attorney and advance decisions
  • Clarifies the new "Deprivation of Liberty Safeguards" in light of the latest court decisions
