Yesterday we were delighted to be joined by Sophy Miles and Mary-Rachel McCabe of Doughty Street Chambers as part of the MCA Webinar Series 2021. Sophy and Mary-Rachel gave a very helpful and insightful update on the relationship between mental capacity and sexual relations in the light of the case of ‘Re: JB’.

We’re very grateful to Sophy and Mary-Rachel and received very positive feedback from attendees of the webinar. If you weren’t able to join us for the webinar on the day and would like to see the content, you can download the slides and view a recording of the full webinar below.

More about the MCA Webinar Series 2021

Our ‘Annual Review of the Mental Capacity Act’ conference has grown in popularity in recent years and normally attracts over 300 attendees. Due to the pandemic, we were unable to hold a 2020 event and decided to hold this webinar series for 2021. Our aim is to bring you the same great content from some of the leading minds in Mental Capacity Law, in a safe and appropriate format.

We hope to return to holding live conferences again in future but we’re very aware that webinars have grown rapidly in the last year or so. In the future I think it’s more than likely that we will run live events and webinars to share this specialist knowledge across a range of formats.
