The LIV Capacity Guidelines and Toolkit (the Guidelines) are a comprehensive resource for practitioners about what to do when a client’s capacity is in doubt.

The Guidelines were revised in 2016 to highlight the changes brought about by the Powers of Attorney Act 2016 (Vic) and contain need-to-know information for practitioners about: capacity standards; indicia of potential incapacity; support and substitute decision making; and how to seek a formal capacity assessment. They are an invaluable resource for any legal practitioner taking instructions from clients.

A Concise Edition of the Guidelines is available online. The Full version of the Guidelines is available for purchase from Law Books, in-store or online.
