Restoring Competency with NCGS 35A-1130: New UNC-SOG Social Services Law Bulletin

The newest issue of the University of North Carolina School of Government's Social Services Law Bulletin is now available!  Issue 44 is linked through the Elon Law Library catalog and also available directly through the UNC-SOG website.  

This issue, entitled "Restoration to Competency under G.S. 35A-1130: Common Issues and Questions," discusses the concerns that can come up in a court proceeding where an adult, who has previous been declared incompetent, petitions to restore her legal status to competent.

If you are intrigued by this topic, or other perspectives on social services, look through the back issues available.  In addition, check out the other bulletins available from the SOG.  They range from Family Law to Local Government Law to Economics--something for everyone's varied interests!
