Court of Protection pilot schemes extended

Court of Protection pilot schemes extended

The Court of Protection pilot schemes on Transparency, Case Management, and Section 49 Reports have all been extended until 30 November 2017.


Court of Protection Practice provides a detailed and authoritative guide to the enhanced jurisdiction. Written by a team of lawyers involved in the implementation of the Mental Capacity Act 2005, it provides valuable procedural guidance for all judges hearing cases in the Court of Protection and remains the leading court reference work governing this fast-developing jurisdiction.

Three Court of Protection pilot schemes were launched in January 2016 and were due to come to an end on 31 August 2017. The intention is that a full revised and consolidated package of the Court of Protection Rules and their supporting Practice Directions, providing for the piloted procedures to become part of normal court procedure, will be laid before the end of the year and therefore the pilots have been extended until the date when the consolidated Rules will come into force to avoid a gap.
