Legal Capacity

  • Legal capacity laws determine:
    • whether a person can make decisions for themselves and,
    • when someone else will be required to make decisions for them
  • A person is allowed to make decisions if they satisfy the legal criteria of “capacity” to do so
  • These criteria are often cognitive in nature
  • Being considered to be “capable” in law means a person has power to control their own decisions
