Suggested Readings


It is suggested that members of the workgroup read the following materials.  They are relevant to our study of capacity assessments in probate conservatorship proceedings.  Some are marked as highly recommended while others are marked as optional.  Such documents will sent via email to members from time to time.  They will also be posted on this page so that others can become familiar with the background information, scholarly articles, commentaries, statutes, court cases, and other information that guide our study.
