This is a new venture for us and the first blog created by the School of Law at Nottingham (so we are only about 15 years behind the curve).
Our aims for this blog are wide and vague. We want to use it to to discuss developments in case-law and legislation both domestically and internationally, to let people know about forthcoming events concerning mental health and capacity law, to give people a chance to reflect on theory and practice, especially in the open-ended and inconclusive fashion which most journals (understandably) resist publishing and finally to give people a chance to vent about aspects of law or policy which frustrate, confuse or amaze them.
But where we go will largely depend on the responses we get to our posts and the contributions we receive from others. If you have news or views which you would like to add please get in touch.
