Professor Nina Kohn Discusses Changes Needed in the Guardianship System

In this ABC 7 news story, Professor Nina Kohn discusses significant issues in the adult guardianship system across the U.S. and proposed changes to adult guardianship laws.

“It’s far too easy to appoint guardians for people and it’s far too easy to give those guardians much broader powers than they actually need to protect the individual,” she said.

Kohn said legislators have not made guardianship reform a priority.

“You just have to think that these people are worth it and the reality is that legislatures have not treated these people as worth it,” she said.
