SRA Competency B


There are legal challenges posed by the care of older teenagers, particularly those young people who lack mental capacity.

This group can be highly vulnerable and are at risk of exploitation and abuse when services fail them. The law in this area is increasingly complex and the relationship between the various agencies and statutory frameworks can be difficult to navigate.

This course is aimed at family and mental capacity lawyers who need to advise on the difficult issues arising from the transition away from child care services into the adult mental capacity arena.

What You Will Learn

This course will cover the following:

  • Main principles of the law governing transitions
  • The principles of mental capacity law as it relates to young adults
  • Caselaw in respect of deprivation of liberty and the implications of Birmingham City Council v D [2016]
  • Dual jurisdiction - Applications which cross over between the Family Court and the Court of Protection
  • Vulnerability outside of the Mental Capacity Act
  • Applications to the High Court in wardship and the inherent jurisdiction
