Finding and Using Options Less Restrictive Than Guardianship – A New Tool for Lawyers


Join the American Bar Associations (ABA) Commission on Law and Aging, Commission, on Disability Rights, Section on Civil Rights and Social Justice, and their Section on Real Property, Trust and Estate Law for a webinar on June 28, 2016 to introduce their new PRACTICAL tool. This tool was created to help lawyers identify and consider decision-making options for persons with disabilities that are less restrictive than guardianship. The speakers will summarize each of the tools nine steps, and give examples of their use in practice. They will describe how the tool can blend in with the case interview process and assist in case analysis, and how it can help lawyers in a variety of roles.
