Since its inception in 2007, the Court of Protection has made crucial decisions to try to protect the well-being of vulnerable individuals. In a rapidly-evolving legal environment, AvMA’s third annual Court of Protection conference will examine the current state of litigation and the challenges and responsibilities facing those who work in this important area.

Having had to postpone this conference three times due to the Covid pandemic, we are very much looking forward to welcoming you to what is due to be AvMA’s first face-to-face conference since March 2020!

Target audience: Court of Protection specialists, including CoP lawyers and clinical negligence lawyers with an involvement with the CoP, professional deputies, private client experts, trustees, case managers.
