It is suitable for qualified BIAs.

  • Current guidance on key BIA decisions including restriction or deprivation of liberty, assessing capacity, best interests etc.
  • Recent research and guidance relevant to BIA practice.
  • Plans for changes to the Deprivation of Liberty Safeguards legislation and wider human rights legal context.
