2021-2022 Erie County Bar Foundation Campaign

Court Certified Article 81 Training

Presented on March 4, 2021
7.0 CLE credits: 1.0 Ethics, 5.0 Areas of Professional Practice, 1.0 Skills (full program appropriate for all attorneys. Areas of Professional Practice credit only appropriate for newly admitted attorneys in this format)

This full-day program meets the legal requirements certified by the NYS Office of Court Administration Guardian and Fiduciary Services; therefore, all participants of this program are eligible for enrollment on the list of the Chief Administrator, pursuant to Part 36 of the Rules of the Chief Judge, in the category of “Guardian, Court Evaluator, and Attorney for Alleged Incapacitated Person.”

This program takes a functional approach to determining whether an alleged incapacitated person requires a guardian and places a premium on employing the least restrictive intervention to preserve independence and self-determination. Article 81 requires the appointment of a court evaluator in all cases to determine the functional strengths and weaknesses of the alleged incapacitated person, to explain the court proceedings and to advise the person of his or her rights, including the right to counsel. The authority and powers of the guardian are then tailored to the specific needs of the incapacitated person and may be reduced or increased over time as the person’s needs change. You will hear from attorneys, court representatives and others with expertise in this important area of practice.

See attached agenda for list of topics and speakers.
