In this episode, Christopher Johnston KC is joined by Tom O’Connor, Clerking Team Leader at Serjeants’ Inn Chambers. Whilst Tom is not an author of Medical Treatment: Decisions and the Law, he plays a key part in the work mentioned in its chapters.
Together they discuss the journey of a Court of Protection case, with a particular focus on urgent/out-of-hours matters, and what led Tom to his interest in the Court of Protection. The discussion offers insight into the process of making an emergency application to the court and points for counsel and clients to consider along the way.
