Under Article 81 of the Mental Hygiene Law, persons appointed as a court evaluator or guardian, in almost all cases, must receive training approved by the Office of Court Administration. This program has been approved by the Office of Court Administration for such purposes.
The highly qualified and experienced practitioners in the health, elder and guardianship law fields on the faculty will highlight the latest legal and regulatory developments in this area as well as the fundamentals of how to serve as an effective guardian or court evaluator.
By attending this live session or by viewing the recording we will make of this program, you will fulfill the training requirements for enrollment on the Part 36 Fiduciary Eligibility List as guardian, court evaluator, and attorney for alleged incapacitated persons.
