Thanks to Peter for this face to face training workshop.

Session Overview:

A lasting power of attorney (LPA) is a legal document that lets you (the ‘donor’) appoint one or more people (known as ‘attorneys’) to help you make decisions or to make decisions on your behalf.

This gives you more control over what happens to you if you have an accident or an illness and cannot make your own decisions (you ‘lack mental capacity’). This session will explain all you need to know about setting up LPA’s for your clients.

Venue: Barton Law Offices, Leeward House, Fitzroy Road, Exeter, EX1 3LJ.

Timing: Tea, coffee & bacon sandwiches at 8.30am, session starts at 9am for 90 minutes, ending 10.30am.

Learning objectives:

At the end of the session attendees will be able to:

  • EPAs v LPAs

  • The new documents

  • Mental Capacity Act

  • How to assist your clients
