Putting P’s wishes and feelings at the centre.

A massive thanks to Sophy Miles and Daniella Waddoup from Doughty Street Chambers for leading the Peter Edwards Law day for advocate IMCAs and RPRs. We looked at how to ensure that P’s wishes and feelings are at the centre of Court of Protection work, what we can learn from criminal and family jurisdictions to seek to ensure that cases in relation to the vulnerable are heard ‘fairly’ and ‘justly’, what might change when the court uses the new Accredited Legal Representatives (Peter and Jola are accredited ALRs) and finally some recent decisions of the Court.
