Alex Ruck Keene, a practising English barrister and academic specialising in mental capacity law, will present preliminary results of research into the way in which the Court of Protection seeks to address difficult capacity cases in England and Wales.
The research is part of a multi-jurisdictional project - including Scotland and New Zealand - looking at what makes some decisions regarding mental capacity hard, and seeking to develop educational interventions to assist psychiatrists and others sensibly to answer the complex questions that arise in this area. One aim of the workshop is to solicit interest amongst both psychiatrist and lawyers for recruitment into the second - interview - stage of the research starting in 2018.
