New guide to the process of judicial deprivation of liberty authorisations

New guide to the process of judicial deprivation of liberty authorisations
The new process for the judicial authorisation of deprivation of liberty in settings outside hospitals and care homes came into force on 17 November.

The procedure implements the judgments of Sir James Munby P in Re X [2014] EWCOP 25 and Re X [2014] EWCOP 37. It is set out in the new Part 2 of Practice Direction 10AA (Deprivation of Liberty Applications) and is accompanied by a new application form (with annexes), designed exclusively for applying for court-authorised deprivations of liberty.

Thirty Nine Essex Street Chambers have produced a guide to the process of judicial deprivation of liberty authorisations. Click here to view the guide.
