CVLS is proud to partner with the Illinois Disability Association (IDA), a non-for profit association, in offering a series of CLE seminars on guardianships, particularly as they pertain to persons with disabilities. This series is part of a new collaboration between CVLS and the IDA to expand and enhance pro bono services to low-income persons with disabilities and their guardians. All seminars will be presented by IDA staff and experts in the field.


Powers of attorney began as a simple instrument within a client’s estate plan. However, it has become an extremely powerful tool in late-in-life-estate planning, financial management during disability, and health care decision-making. Kerry Peck will discuss how and when to use this tool in Guardian ad Litem cases.
