'Thank you, really useful course.'


There are legal challenges posed by the care of older teenagers moving into adulthood, 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. A thorough understanding of the support services open to these children, and the different applications that can be made to the court to safeguard them is pivotal.

This virtual classroom seminar 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 and mental capacity arena.

What You Will Learn

This live and interactive session will cover the following:

  • Main principles of the law governing transitions from children’s social care to adults
  • The principles of mental capacity law as it relates to young adults
  • Caselaw in respect of deprivation of liberty and the implications of Re D [2019]
  • Dual jurisdiction - Applications which cross over between the Family Court and the Court of Protection
  • The safety net - wardship and the inherent jurisdiction

Recording of live sessions: Soon after the Learn Live session has taken place you will be able to go back and access the recording - should you wish to revisit the material discussed.
