Guardianship Reform Legislation: An Attorney’s Guide to Identifying and Advocating for Better Systems

Please note that the ABA will seek 1.5 hours of CLE credit in 60 minute states and 1.8 hours of CLE credit in 50 minute states. Credit hours are estimated and are subject to each state's approval and credit rounding rules. Please visit the MCLE website for general information on CLE at the ABA. This CLE is available on-demand for free for ABA members and for $50 for non-members

Our distinguished panel highlights key statutory innovations that states can adopt to minimize unnecessary guardianships, better monitor guardians, and improve court systems. Speakers then identify strategies that attorneys can use to advocate for both large-scale and small-scale reform, and the role of the bar in advancing this work. Particular emphasis will be placed on the role of statutory reform on changing incentives and on using the new Uniform Act on Guardianship, Conservatorship, and Other Protective Arrangements Act as a vehicle for court reform.
