Involuntary Commitment: I’ve Heard the Term, but What Is the Process?

$195.00

Re-Broadcast on June 11, 2018

CLE Credits earned: 2 GEN

Fundamentally, involuntary commitment can be thought of as a process that can be initiated when a person poses a risk or danger to themselves or to others. Typically, in the United States in particular, patient autonomy and decision making are cornerstones of our medical system. One can think of involuntary commitment as an exception to these general rules. The process that follows is complex and the laws vary by state (and different countries).

Key topics to be discussed:

•   What the definitions of involuntary commitment are in different states and countries
•   Who can be involuntarily committed and what criteria must be met
•   What is the legal process after the initial commitment
•   How do HIPAA and other advanced directives come into play?

Accreditation Policy
myLawCLE seeks accreditation for all programs in all states. (Accreditation for paralegals sought thru NALA and NFPA paralegal associations.) Each attending attorney/paralegal will receive a certificate of completion following the close of the CLE program as proof of attendance. In required states, myLawCLE records attorney/paralegals attendance, in all other states attorney/paralegal is provided with the approved CLE certificate to submit to their state bar or governing association.

Automatic MCLE Approvals
All myLawCLE CLE programs are accredited automatically either directly or via reciprocity in the following states: AK, AL, AR, CA, CO, CT, FL, GA, HI, ME, MO, MS, MT, ND, NH, NM, NJ, NY, PA, PR, SD, UT, WV, WY and VT. (AZ does not approve CLE programs, but accepts our certificates for CLE credit.)

Applied MCLE Approvals
myLawCLE seeks approval via application in all other states that are not automatically approved through myLawCLE’s state accreditation. (Some states may take up to 4 weeks to send in final accreditation, however attendees will receive accreditation according to the date the class was taken—the state of VA may take up to 12 weeks.)

Accreditation on Formats: Live Video Broadcasts, “Live” Re-Broadcasts and On-Demand CLEs

Live Video Broadcasts
Live video broadcasts are new live CLE programs being streamed and recorded for the first time. All of these programs qualify for “Live” CLE credit in all states except LA and PA—these two states require in-person attendance to qualify for “Live” CLE credit.

“Live” Re-Broadcasts
“Live” Re-broadcasts are replays of previous recorded CLE programs, set on a specific date and time and where the original presenting speakers calls in live at the end of the event to answer questions. This “live” element allows for “live” Re-broadcast CLEs to qualify for “Live” CLE credits in most states. [The following states DO NOT allow for “live” CLE credits on re-broadcast CLEs: NM and LA.]

On-Demand CLEs
On-demand CLE classes are available 24/7 via the myLawCLE portal. Attendance to these classes is monitored and recorded via our login process and a certificate of completion is issued upon the close of viewing the program. These CLEs can be viewed at anytime and only qualify for self-study CLE credits.

Reciprocity
Many states allow for credit to be granted on a 1:1 reciprocal basis for courses approved in another mandatory CLE jurisdiction state. This is known as a reciprocity provision and includes the following states: AK, AR, CO, CT, FL, GA, ME, MO, MT, ND, NH, NJ, NY, PR, SD and WV. myLawCLE does not seek direct accreditation of live webinars or teleconferences in these states.

myLawCLE Credit Guarantee
Additionally, on all online CLE programs application for approval will be made in all states where attending attorneys are primarily licensed in. If a registered attorney does not receive credit from their state for any reason, a full refund will be granted.
