Implications of Supreme Court decision in Re D (PR cannot authorise DoL)
DoLs start at 18. MCA 16. MHA no minimum age for detention.
Effect of proposed changes to the MCA and LPS which effects 16+
How to lawfully deprive a child or young person of their liberty requires great care.
What is a DoL and where does parental responsibility fit? Recent case law.
The course will look at the complex inter relationship between the MCA, MHA and Children’s legislation
When should a child or young person be sectioned?
