Court of Protection Practice 2017 ePDF
The Court of Protection Practice retains its well-established format as the leading court reference work governing this fast-developing jurisdiction, with a status akin to its sister publication The Red Book. This new edition has been further enhanced and updated throughout, thus ensuring that practitioners have all the latest developments at their fingertips.
The ePDF is a digital representation of the printed text with identical pagination, linked contents and index but with the added benefits of a keyword search function, ability to bookmark pages, annotate and highlight text. Choose this format if you need an electronic version that looks exactly like print, for example if you need to make page references in court.
