“Communication and Participation in the Court of Protection” – a pioneering training film for lawyers


CategoryNews Author Victoria Butler-Cole QC, Alexander Ruck Keene, Penny Cooper B.Sc. (Hons), Ph.D. Date

Penny Cooper, Victoria Butler-Cole QC, Alex Ruck Keene and researchers on the AHRC-funded project, Judging Values and Participation in Mental Capacity Law, based at the ICPR, Birkbeck School of Law, have pioneered a training film for specialist lawyers who work in the Court of Protection, “Communication and Participation in the Court of Protection.”

The video, developed in association with VoiceAbility, and created because face to face training was not possible during lockdown, utilises role-plays and roundtables with lawyers and people with learning disability and autism to demonstrate how to enhance communication and achieve better quality evidence for the court.

The Judging Values and Participation in Mental Capacity Law project involves a team of academics from Birkbeck College, University of Bristol, and University of Oxford and the project is funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council.

The video is now available on YouTube here.
