Selected Topics in Contested Conservatorships

Presented by: Elder Law Section

About the Program:
This all-day program is intended for attorneys and probate judges as a comprehensive look at the various roles involved when representing clients in contested involuntary conservatorship proceedings. Particular attention will be given to the role of the attorney representing the respondent, the rules of evidence, and the tools used to create a record. In light of this, participants will view a mock contested hearing. The seminar will wrap up with an overview of recent cases, and an update on the UGUPPY legislation and interstate issues.
