RadcliffesLeBrasseur invite you to its latest annual conference on Mental Health Law.
The conference will review recent developments in mental health law and some of the current issues in this changing field.

Why attend this Conference?

Mental Health Law engages important issues of personal liberty and thus often comes under the scrutiny of the Courts. The speakers will look at the recent legal developments.
