The Law Society will shortly release a podcast to support its own guidance on the case law relating to deprivation of liberty safeguards (DoLS). 

The Department of Health has specially commissioned the Law Society to support health and social care professionals making DoLS decisions in a variety of settings, following the landmark decision of the Supreme Court in Cheshire West.

The podcast will be delivered by Alex Ruck Keene (39 Essex Street Chambers), member of the Law Society’s Mental Health & Disability Committee and leader of the guidance drafting group. The guidance and podcast will be available online by the end of March 2015.
