Birmingham is an exceptionally busy regional hub for COP work. The region boosts numerous specialised solicitors in this discipline and a thriving mental capacity professional community.

The West Midlands CoPPA region is currently setting up a working committee and hopes to start hosting seminars and networking functions in short course. If you have an interest in being part of the working group please contact its chair, Nageena Khalique Q.C.

Membership of CoPPA is dealt with by the CoPPA committee which means all subscriptions are paid to the national group but membership covers all regional attendance
