National experts in York to review Mental Capacity Act

A national panel of experts gathered in York for the Fifth Annual Review of the Mental Capacity Act 2005.

Organised by Langleys Solicitors LLP, the Fifth Annual Review featured keynote speeches by members of the panel who included High Court judge Mr Justice Baker and the Official Solicitor Alastair Pitblado.

The Review was also attended by The Right Honourable Sir James Munby.

The annual review has become a popular feature in the diaries of lawyers, judges, clinicians and social work professionals, providing them with a valuable opportunity to debate the key issues around the Mental Capacity Act 2005 and the implications of latest judgments made in the Court of Protection.

Langleys’ Health and Social Care Unit deals with community care, medical treatment, mental capacity and adult safeguarding cases in the Court of Protection (CoP).

The team is ranked in the prestigious Legal 500 which describes it as having “a national footprint for CoP matters”.
