Jonathan Herring


This commentary examines some of the recent case law on the removal of vulnerable adults from their homes. It highlights the uncertainty over the extent of the inherent jurisdiction in relation to vulnerable adults and questions whether the current law provides adequate protection of their human rights. It also examines the courts' use of best interests in this context.
