About the Program

In response to the highly publicized case of Britney Spears, California’s conservatorship laws have undergone significant changes. This presentation will begin with a background of the perceived need for legal change, followed by a concise overview of the recent amendments and their implications for future conservatorship petitions, including new allegations and findings. The session will also address the evolving challenges and considerations for professional fiduciaries under these new laws. If time permits, the speaker will conclude with insights into national trends in conservatorship laws, offering a broader context for California’s reforms.
