We’re very excited to be able to share this latest entry with you on the Encyclopaedia, by Dr Lucy Series who writes the wonderful The Small Places blog.
Dr Series is a Research Associate at Cardiff Law School, currently working on a research project funded by the Nuffield Foundation, looking at welfare cases in the Court of Protection.
Lucy’s research interests include legal capacity, disability rights and community care law. Her submission for the Encyclopaedia explains the fundamental principles behind the Mental Capacity Act 2005 and its relationship with parent carers.
She has a PhD from Exeter University, which examined the Mental Capacity Act 2005 and the deprivation of liberty safeguards, using republican political theory.
She has written for several publications, including The Guardian, Community Care and Local Government Lawyer.
We are incredibly grateful to Lucy for her submission; it is a wonderful addition to the Encyclopaedia.
