Videos released to assist SALRI consultation on Powers of Attorney
The South Australian Law Reform Institute (SALRI), based at the Adelaide Law School, is currently investigating whether the current laws that apply to Enduring Powers of Attorney (POAs) are effective and are working to protect vulnerable South Australians.
SALRI is keen to hear the views and concerns of legal practitioners, medical and allied health professionals, aged care and other interested members of the community, on this important topic.
The SA Government’s YourSAy consultation platform is being used to gather the thoughts and views of interested parties on how the law can be improved to better protect both those vulnerable and their appointed attorney. Participants can take a short survey, contribute to a Discussion or make a submission by emailing SALRI direct.
To assist in informing responses, SALRI has produced a comprehensive background video and a number of shorter targeted videos on several of the main aspects of this reference which can be accessed by clicking on the individual links below:
- Background video
- The Use of POA
- The Role of the Attorney
- Registering a POA
- Intersection of Legal and Medical roles for POA
The closing date for submissions is 5pm, Friday 4 September 2020.
