Mature Couple Meeting with Financial Advisor.

Intended to supplement the basic guardianship training course, this program will provide practical advice to the Article 81 Guardianship practitioner enabling them to face the current challenges facing the practice and continue to meet the needs and protect the rights of (alleged) incapacitated persons. Seasoned counsel will discuss the current factors creating challenges to meeting client needs, a historical perspective of guardianship practice, whether non-lawyers should be appointed as evaluators as well as practical advice and best practice tips. A judicial roundtable will explore the current status of Article 81 guardianships from the perspective of the judiciary. This program is sure to offer something to enhance the practice for participants of all levels of experience.
