Practice Directions and Court of Protection rules

Practice Directions are directions given by the President of the Court on the Court's practices and procedures. They need to be read in conjunction with the Court Rules in order to have a better understanding of how the Court operates.

They are written in plain English although it is legal professionals who will mainly consider Practice Directions.

Court of Protection practice directions and Court rules can now be found on Link to external site HMCS website under Practice Directions, Court of Protection.
