The Coalition to Assist Limited Capacity New Yorkers will sponsor a four part webinar series beginning with a panel of article 81 guardianship judges in New York City who will discuss the impact of COVID-19 on their courts.
“The judges will share their knowledge on how their parts and the practice within the courts have been impacted by the pandemic, best practices that have emerged in light of our new socially-distanced reality, and their hopes and recommendations for the future,” according to the Coalition, a joint project of Project Guardianship and NYLAG’s LegalHealth Program.
The panel of judges include Justice Lisa Sokoloff from New York County, Justice Ta-Tanisha James from the Integrated Guardianship/Housing Part in New York County, Justice Lisa Ottley from Kings County, Justice Charles Troia from Richmond County, and Justice Wyatt Gibbons from Queens County.
In addition to its four-part webinar series, the Coalition reports that it will be sponsoring additional events in 2021 including an event on guardianship in rural communities in New York State.
The first webinar of the four part series will begin on March 4, 2021 at 5:00pmEST.
