This new introductory level full day course includes sample precedents, court forms and case law update, meaning you will leave with the skills to tackle a wide range of Court of Protection applications with confidence.

It is suitable for newly qualified solicitors, those returning after a career break or private client lawyers who need to offer a service to clients in order to meet the demand for Court of Protection applications.

  • The court’s extensive jurisdiction and functions of the Office of Public Guardian
