Sarah's court of protection practice has developed as a natural step from my work representing vulnerable children. Sarah has been involved in a programme of intensive training, in chambers, over several months.
She has represented protected parties on issues of capacity and decisions over their welfare, including issues over deprivation of liberty.
Sarah lectures in house on aspects of the court of protection. She has particular interest in forced marriages.
