Course Certificate in Court of Protection Practice


Suitable for newly qualified solicitors, those returning after a career break or those private client lawyers who need to offer a service to clients in order to meet the demand for Court of Protection applications, this course covers everything from marketing and practice opportunities, to sample forms and a case law update.

Delegates will leave with the skills to tackle the range of applications with confidence.

The SRA Competency Statement area A says that solicitors should maintain an adequate and up-to-date understanding of relevant law, policy and practice and Area B looks at technical legal practice including drafting documents which are legally effective and states that solicitors should plan, manage and progress legal cases and transactions. With this in mind, plus the fact that a large proportion of applications submitted to the Court of Protection contain errors, this course has been designed to help you eliminate these errors.

This course helps achieve competency by covering the following areas in easy to understand detail:

  • Basic applications and wider applications
  • The court’s jurisdiction and functions of the Office of Public Guardian
  • When to apply to the Court for a welfare/financial decision
  • The application and procedure for the appointment of a Deputy
  • The application and procedure for Single Orders
  • Sale and purchase of Property
  • Trustees' applications
  • Gifts, settlements and statutory wills
  • Making decisions as a Deputy
  • Making the most of state support
  • Getting paid
