With very little guidance or industry training currently available on how to assess testamentary capacity, STEP invites you to this free one hour session which will cover:
• Capacity – and the issues that affect it.
• Law – the legal tests of testamentary capacity (for example considering the Banks v Goodfellow test in contrast to the Mental Capacity Act 2005 – and how these tests are treated by courts).
• Practice – dealing with medics, matters to include in file notes, the importance of family trees, assessing clients.
The international panel of experts will discuss some of the key issues when undertaking a capacity assessment and how best to address them. During the event, there will be interactive discussion where STEP is keen to hear members' appetite and enthusiasm for the development and implementation of an online testamentary capacity assessment course which would include a standardised questionnaire.
Join us on 30 June 2021 at 16:30-17:30 GMT+1 where we will explore the issues and proposals for this course in more detail.
