Total Credits: 5.5 CLE, 1.5 Ethics
The conservatorship of Britney Spears captured the attention of the world and showed a challenging side of protective proceedings. Films such as I Care a Lot have done the same. Can what happened to Britney or Diane Wiest’s character happen to someone in Arizona? There are legal protections in place, but how well do they work in Arizona compared to California? And how do judges, attorneys and fiduciaries navigate the space to try to ensure those subjected to the proceedings receive only the protections that are appropriate? The program explores these issues as well as the media’s challenge to get the story right and ethical issues regarding representation of proposed protected people and the challenges of serving high-functioning individuals who might be at risk if they were to go it alone.
