Adult Guardianships & Conservatorships

October 11, 2019 @ 8:30 am - 4:00 pm

Map Link

The University of Alabama School of Law, Tuscaloosa

6 MCLE Credit Hours, including 1 Ethics Hour


The unfortunate reality is that many older adults have long periods toward the end of life when they are not able to make decisions for themselves – due to Alzheimer’s or other forms of dementia, a stroke, an accident, or some other serious medical condition. This seminar will be helpful for all practitioners who represent clients in seeking guardianship and/or conservatorship, and for practitioners who serve as guardians-ad-litem or court representatives in such cases.


Registration Options: You can attend this seminar “live” either by attending in person at the venue, or by watching a webcast on your computer. The Alabama Bar Association counts both as “live” credits.

You may also pay for the in person seminar by credit card or check.
