UPDATE: DEPRIVATION OF LIBERTIES (DoLS) Tim Spencer-Lane, Law Commission Lawyer, Public Law Team Unfortunately, the publication of the final report and draft bill was delayed. The reason for the delay was the complexity of the task of drafting legislation on such an important issue. It was vitally important to get the law right here. Badly drafted, over-complicated law is a big part of the problem with the current DoLS, and we did not want to fall into the same trap again. We were very aware that the project deadline was brought forward at the request of the Department of Health and for a good reason: there is an urgent need for the system to be improved. We know too that many stakeholders were waiting for our report and draft Bill and would be disappointed with any delay. For this we apologise. I am pleased to now inform you that the Law Commission’s report Mental Capacity and Deprivation of Liberty has been published. In it we recommend that the DoLS should be replaced with a new scheme – which we have called the Liberty Protection Safeguards. We would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your contribution to the project. Consultation and the on-going involvement of stakeholders has been essential in shaping our final recommendations. You can find our final report (which includes the draft Bill), as well as the other project documents, at our website: http://www.lawcom.gov.uk/project/mental-capacity-and-deprivation-of-liberty/
The report and draft Bill will now be considered by the Government.

POST EVENT SUMMARY
THE LIFE OF P
In association with:
Anthony Gold Solicitors
This event took place on the 9th February 2017 and was very well attended. The event story followed the life of P from when she was injured at nine years old; through her settlement, disputes with her family, her relationships, marriage, children and property, to her employment and the challenging behaviour she displayed. Â Thanks to the excellent feedback provided by delegates of the first class topics and presenters (who provided an informative and thought provoking day), the Training and Events Group is considering running a similar event in the not so distant future. If you attended this event and have any questions about the Life of P or if you have any questions for any of the solicitors who spoke at the event, please contact Eileen Donaghey who will arrange for you to speak to them. She can be contacted via email: Eileen.Donaghey@anthonygold.co.ukÂ This event was kindly sponsored by and held in association with Anthony Gold Solicitors. Our sincere thanks to the firm for providing a fantastic venue, the St Pancras Renaissance Hotel and for providing brilliant speakers and course content.
