Neil Allen to speak at Switalskis event in October at York

Neil Allen will be speaking at Switalskis’ Eleventh Annual Review of the Mental Capacity Act 2005 on October 10th. Neil’s topic of discussion will be Inherent Jurisdiction v Court of Protection. 

Neil was called to the Bar in 1999. He practices from 39 Essex Chambers and has a particular interest in human rights, mental health and incapacity law. He is ranked as a leading junior by Chambers & Partners and The Legal 500 who say “He has a thoughtful, analytical approach to cases and an amazing eye for detail”.

He also teaches undergraduate and postgraduate students, and regularly delivers training for a variety of audiences, as well as being the Deputy Director of Manchester University’s Legal Advice Centre. 

He appeared in the Supreme Court deprivation of liberty case of P v Cheshire West and Chester Council; P and Q v Surrey County Council [2014] UKSC 19 and local authorities in the Re X proceedings (which designed an Article 5 procedure for Court-authorised deprivations of liberty). Neil co-authored the Law Society’s guide on Deprivation of Liberty, assisted Adass with the new DoLS forms, and is an Advisor to the Care Quality Commission’s DoLS Group.

We are delighted to welcome Neil to this year’s conference.
