Mental Health Tribunals

Law, Practice and Procedure (Second Edition)

By Jonathan Butler

Mental Health Tribunals: Law, Practice and Procedure is a highly practical reference work in the UK for all those appearing before the Tribunal, as well as for Tribunal members themselves. Detailed explanatory commentary about the organization, procedure, and jurisdiction of the Tribunal is followed by an analysis of Tribunal powers in relation to both non-offender and offender patients. This second edition has been methodically revised to take into account the developing procedure of the Tribunal system, the on-going development of the UK's mental health and mental capacity Acts, as well as noting all significant case-law since the previous edition. In addition to explanatory commentary, the book will be supplemented by a host of relevant materials, including UK legislation and codes of practice. [Subject: Mental Health Law]
