This event will critically explore the research gaps, domestically and internationally in medical and mental health legislation and related practices. The safeguards designed to protect those delivering health care and treatment and those receiving it will be addressed highlighting the place of research in identifying omissions in the existing provision. The overarching purpose of this research event is to effect advantageous change to the position of practitioners and patients in the medical and mental health context, including those involved in the criminal justice system, via new international collaborations and the adoption of new perspectives. The event will include presentations from leading academics and practitioners from the North East Court of Protection Practitioners Association (CoPPA) who are well placed to describe the practical shortcomings of the current legal system that they work within. This one day event will advance the charitable objects of the Society of Legal Scholars by providing a forum to explore a range of very topical, under-explored legal areas relating to the medicine, capacity and mental health.
