A National Conference jointly promoted by the Approved Mental
Health Professionals Association (North West and North Wales)
and Cardiff Law School with sponsorship from Irwin Mitchell
Solicitors and Thirty Nine Essex Street Barristers Chambers and
with support from Manchester University.

The Conference will review the leading judgments and policy
challenges that have emerged over the last year in relation to the
Mental Health and Mental Capacity legislation and the social care
and medical contexts in which their influence comes to bear.
The Conference will open with a Key Note Address by Mr Justice
(Sir Peter) Jackson of the High Court Family Division who has
presided over a number of highly influential Mental Capacity and
Mental Health Act cases in the Court of Protection (including for
example, Hillingdon LBC v Neary).

The Conference brings together many leading legal, policy and
mental health practitioners and commentators, whose work
has shaped the law and practice in this field. They will, in their
contributions, analyse recent legal judgments, medical and policy
developments with the morning session chaired by Professor
Richard Jones.

The Conference provides an opportunity for discussion and
debate, and will be of special relevance to those who are affected
by the legislation: service users, advocates, health and social care
practitioners, lawyers, researchers, independent sector service
providers and policy activists.The Conference provides an opportunity for discussion, questions and debate and will be of special relevance to those who are affected by the legislation, be they service users, advocates, health and social care practitioners, lawyers, researchers, independent
