Mental Capacity Bill explained

The Mental Capacity Bill explained - Law Centre (NI) policy briefing

Capacity Bill Law Centre NI information briefing 2014 front cover

The Mental Capacity Bill was issued for public consultation on 27 May 2014 and the consultation ends on 2 September. The Bill fuses mental health and mental capacity law into a single piece of legislation. 

The Law Centre believes it is important that all stakeholders engage with the consultation but we are aware that it is a complex piece of legislation. To this effect, we have put together an information briefing, The Mental Capacity Bill explained, to clarify the core civil provisions of the Bill.

The aim of this briefing is to foster a greater level of understanding of the complexities of the draft legislation amongst the wide number of stakeholders with a keen and practical interest in the Bill.
