Law Society Mental Welfare Accreditation Scheme goes live

The Law Society’s Mental Welfare Accreditation scheme has now launched, designed both to enable to produce a cohort of individuals able to act as Accredited Legal Representatives (i.e. able to represent P directly without a litigation friend when P is joined to Court of Protection proceedings) and also, more broadly, to enable the accreditation of legal practitioners with specific expertise in welfare matters before the Court of Protection.  For more details, see further here.
