Scottish Law Commissioner Laura Dunlop QC - Report Published on Adults with Incapacity

On 1 October 2014 the Commission published a Report on Adults with incapacity including a draft Bill (Scot Law Com No 240).

This area of law is governed primarily by the Adults with Incapacity (Scotland) Act 2000. The Act brought about major reform of Scots law concerning adults who are not able to make decisions about their own affairs. Many provisions of the Act implemented recommendations of the Commission in an earlier Report on this topic (Scot Law Com No 151 Part 1 and Part 2) published in 1995.
