Accredited Legal Representatives (ALRs)

The Law Society’s new scheme for accrediting legal representatives in welfare cases in the Court of Protection has now been given approval and will be launched shortly.

ALRs will be directly appointed by the Court to meet with the person who is the subject of the proceedings in the Court of Protection about their welfare, investigate and read relevant records and advise before then reporting to the Court. We see this as an important step in ensuring that vulnerable people are advised and represented by practitioners who meet high standards of expertise and who have a proven track record, and that people whose cases are before the Court about their welfare have access to quality advice.
