Advancing Guardianship Reform
through
Working Interdisciplinary Networks
of Guardianship Stakeholders (WINGS)

When:

Improvements to state adult guardianship systems can include the promotion of less restrictive options, strengthening rights, and ensuring accountability. To make real changes in law and practice requires the collaboration of courts with stakeholders in the legal, aging, and disability communities. Working Interdisciplinary Networks of Guardianship Stakeholders (WINGS) or similar collaborative entities in many states have begun to forge positive changes.  

The 2020 American Bar Association Commission on Law and Aging WINGS Briefing Paper makes key findings and recommendations about the effectiveness of WINGS and the need for their long-term, systemic support. This webinar will highlight the WINGS Briefing Paper findings and recommendations, and summarize guardianship reform obstacles and efforts and the development of WINGS. Presenters will also offer tips to establish or enhance WINGS in your state.

This webinar will cover:

  • Improvements and challenges in guardianship statutes and practice
  • Necessary interdisciplinary collaboration to spark change
  • Positive changes in law and practice initiated by WINGS
  • Specific steps to establish or enhance WINGS in your state

Speakers:

  • Edwin Walker, Administration for Community Living, Deputy Assistant Secretary for Aging
  • Erica Wood, (Ret.) ABA Commission on Law and Aging
  • Judge Lauren Holland, Lane County Circuit Court Judge
  • Prof. John Craft, Faulkner University, Jones School of Law
