  • Full Description

    As part of Law Week 2020, the Law Institute of Victoria and the Office of the Public Advocate came together to present, in clear layman’s terms, what powers of attorney, medical treatment and guardianship laws mean to you and your loved ones.

    This recording of that session addresses the following key questions:

    • What's the difference between a guardian and an administrator? Is it a different role from a person appointed under a power of attorney? And how does it link up with the medical treatment decision maker?
       
    • What is a supportive attorney, a support person for medical treatment decisions and a supportive guardian? And how are they all appointed?
       
    • What’s the role of VCAT in making and overseeing these appointments? What’s meant by requiring guardians and administrators to make decisions according to a person's "will and preferences"?
  • Presenters

    Bill O’Shea, Australian Legal Practitioner, Chair, LIV Elder Law Committee

    Phil Grano, Principal Legal Officer, Office of the Public Advocate

    Claire McNamara, Legal Officer, Office of the Public Advocate
