Respondents to involuntary mental health treatment have statutory rights to a hearing and to an appeal of that hearing. As their attorney, you have a duty to represent the respondents’ interests throughout this process. Our faculty will discuss maintaining as normal a client relationship as possible under Rule 1.14, and the difference between jurisdictional elements and statutory process. They will review case law for medications hearings, and teach you what counsel can do when a respondent requests an appeal.
