Guardianship Standards Project with The Office of Senator Judith Zaffirini

Students will research existing legal standards relating to adult guardianship in Texas. The project goal is to identify current gaps in the Texas Probate Code with regard to articulating clear standards for when guardianship is required (and for monitoring ongoing guardianships), and to review other state probate codes for possible sample provisions that may offer clearer guidance. Students will provide a short written summary of their research and, if interested, will have the opportunity to meet with Senator Zaffirini's staff to discuss their findings.
