MCA masterclass with barrister Alex Ruck Keene

A great opportunity to hear one of leading barristers in the country discuss current issues around the Mental Capacity Act is taking place in Norwich later this month.

Taking place on Thursday 26 March at the University of East Anglia, the Norfolk Safeguarding Adults Board (NSAB) is pleased to announce a FREE* Mental Capacity Act masterclass with barrister Alex Ruck Keene.

Described as at the ‘forefront of high-profile policy work […] An impressive barrister and the font of all knowledge on Court of Protection work’, Alex is an experienced barrister, writer and educator. His practice is focused on mental capacity and mental health law. Alex also writes extensively in the field, editing and contributing to leading textbooks and (amongst many other publications) the 39 Essex Chambers Mental Capacity Law Report, the ‘MCA bible’ for solicitors (and others) working in the area.

Alex is the creator of the leading website on mental capacity – Mental Capacity Law and Policy – which provides resources and expert commentary on some of the most difficult mental capacity issues.

Joining Alex on the day will be leading experts to facilitate breakout sessions on the following topics:

  • Points of transition: the MCA and 16 & 17 year olds
  • Unwise decision v duty of care
  • The interface between MCA & MHA: navigating some choppy water
  • So, you think you can do a mental capacity assessment?
