FOR THE PRACTITIONER - THE TOOLS YOU NEED TO DEAL WITH COMMUNITY CARE LAW

An appreciation by Phillip Taylor MBE and Elizabeth Taylor of Richmond Green Chambers

Providing community care services to the public by local authorities and the responsibilities that go with that obligation is a complex and diverse subject; so diverse that the barrister or solicitor advising on such matters is faced with a formidable task.

According to author, Jonathan Butler, an acknowledged specialist in this area, community care law has been described variously by judges with words like `piecemeal', `labyrinthine' and `exceptionally tortuous.' Fortunately for lawyers and non-lawyers alike who are charged with understanding or advising in this often fraught area of law, the `Community Care Law and Local Authority Handbook' has just been published by Jordans in a second edition.

The book is certainly a boon to busy barristers, not to mention social and health care professionals. Here, in one handy and portable volume of over five-hundred pages, all the diverse statutory materials that go to make up the legal framework are brought together. Also included are such materials as Local Authority Circulars and extracts form leading judgments.

Among a host of topics, this indispensible handbook provides detailed coverage of the law and practice relating to disabled and vulnerable adults and children, capacity... accommodation...finance and charging... mental health... community care... and health and social care.

New material in this second edition includes two new chapters on Social Housing and Asylum Support.

Also included are such materials as Local Authority Circulars and extracts form leading judgments.

Among a host of topics, this indispensible handbook provides detailed coverage of the law and practice relating to disabled and vulnerable adults and children, capacity... accommodation...finance and charging... mental health... community care... and health and social care.

New material in this second edition includes two new chapters on Social Housing and Asylum Support. All this is supported by expert commentary on, for example, the way in which the various statutes interrelate and how they have been interpreted by the courts.

Also new: the major changes in respect of `Capacity and the Court of Protection', including recent case law. The Mental Health chapter deals with the new code of Practice and there is a Capacity chapter which examines Deprivation of Liberty.

So, as a guide through what has been referred to as `the legislative maze' of community law, the book works superlatively well! With research resources that include tables of cases, statutes and statutory instruments and logically laid out and detailed table of contents and index, it's not too likely that you won't be able to find whatever you want to know.

We like Butler's quote from Dr. Johnson (as reported by Boswell) in the preface: `Knowledge is of two kinds: we know a subject ourselves or we know where we can find information upon it'. If you seek information or insight from within the tangled web of community law, this book is where you know you can find it. The law is stated as at December 2011.
