Learning law is a life-long skill. There are always new laws and new cases. In the last 15 years there have been two significant new pieces of legislation – the Mental Capacity Act 2005 and the Care Act 2014. With an ageing population and a greater understanding and awareness of mental health issues – what impact is there on society?
