Legal Capacity Training was established in 2014 with the fundamental founding principle to promote equality and human rights principles within health and social care practice. We support statutory, voluntary and independent organisations to implement their obligations with regard to international and domestic law relating to legal capacity, equality and human rights. Our main areas of service provision are training, consultancy, advocacy and decision – making supports.
Josephine McLoughlin is the Director of Legal Capacity Training. Josephine is a qualified social care leader with over 20 years’ experience in the disability sector. In 2013, she qualified as a friendship, relationship, and sexuality instructor from the Callan Institute. Following this, she completed an LL.M. (Masters in Law) in International and Comparative Disability Law and Policy at the Centre for Disability Law and Policy at the NUI Galway. In 2015 Josephine graduated with a first class honours degree and was awarded the CDLP Gold Medal for Excellence. She continues to build on her knowledge and skills and in 2018 completed a course in supported decision making, and also a Certificate in Decision-Making Capacity and Support at the Law Society of Ireland.
