As part of National Celebrate Pro Bono Week, Equal Justice Wyoming, in partnership with the Wyoming State Bar, is pleased to invite you to attend five free CLE webinars. We will host a CLE over the lunch hour (12pm - 1pm MT) each day during Celebrate Pro Bono Week. Join us! https://equaljustice.wy.gov/index.php/attorneys/cle-calendar
This training will provide an overview of Wyoming's Guardianship and Conservatorship laws to help practitioners determine when a guardianship or conservatorship is appropriate and explain the basic process for filing for a guardianship or conservatorship. The session will discuss some common and not so common situations that may present particular challenges to the attorney, like when a guardianship can be helpful to avoid or encourage the need for an involuntary commitment when an individual presents a danger to themselves or others. Attendees will also be provided with a list of resources that may be helpful when pursing guardianships and conservatorships.
