The National Center on Law & Elder Rights has announced a webinar on Thursday September 22, 2022 at 3 eastern on Strengthening Rights & Ensuring Accountability in Guardianship Systems & Practice. Here's a description
Improvements to state court adult guardianship systems can include the promotion of less restrictive options, strengthening rights, and ensuring accountability. Making significant changes in practice and systems requires the commitment of many parties, including courts and the legal, aging, and disability communities.
Join us for Part 1 of this training series to learn about models and promising practices to reform guardianship being implemented by three “highest state court” recipients of the ACL Elder Justice Innovations Guardianship Improvement grant program (Maryland, Minnesota, and Oregon).
This training will also preview Part Two of this series, which will focus on strategies for legal advocacy for proposed protected persons and protected persons.
Presenters will share strategies they are implementing to:
- Address diversion from, alternatives to, and revocation of guardianship;
- Redress occurrence and risk of abuse, neglect, and exploitation in guardianship; and
- Enhance the fairness, effectiveness, timeliness, safety, and integrity of adult guardianship or conservatorship proceedings.
