Virtual Representation: Opportunities and Pitfalls

Thursday, January 23, 2014 12:30 PM to 1:30 PM
Boston Bar Association - 16 Beacon Street, Boston, MA

 

Description:

The use of "virtual representation" – the representation of a legally incompetent person by one who is competent – is now available under the MUPC and MUTC.  It can be used to bind legally incompetent persons in court proceedings and in some circumstances can eliminate the need for the appointment of guardians and guardians ad litem.  There are pitfalls, however, some of which are not so obvious.  Jennifer Locke will give a short overview of various issues presented by virtual representation, which will be followed by a group discussion.  Bring your questions and hypotheticals for the group to kick around!
