Mental Capacity

William Flack has made another considered post on the issue of mental capacity for the purposes of Civil Procedure Rule 21 on his blog. He has also begun a wiki on the topic, which could be a very useful step. (For those not sure what a wiki is, see here, in self referential kind of way).

Contributions are apparently invited, but, despite me having enthusiatically created a user account, there doesn’t seem to be a way to add to or edit the pages at the moment – looks like an issue with permissions, I hope.

Edit 6/05/08 – One has to be added to those permitted to edit – and then it works. Anyone interested should contact William Flack to get permission, which can be done via the Wiki page, I think. Think up a decent username first!

Giles Peaker is a solicitor and partner in the Housing and Public Law team at Anthony Gold Solicitors in South London. You can find him on Linkedin and on Twitter. Known as NL round these parts.

    Thanks for the comments. I did not realise that people had to be invited to join in before the wiki would allow them access. Hopefully the wiki page has now been updated so that Nearly Legal can contribute to it. If anyone else would like to take part you will have to let me know and I will add you as a writer.

    Many thanks, William, it works. I’ve just done a couple of very minor changes as a test. I’ll have a think about what, if anything I could add for your consideration.
