The purpose of the Guardianship and Curatorship Commission of the Nebraska Supreme Court is to continuously analyze and study the laws, judicial rules, and judicial procedures relating to guardianships and conservatories. This commission examines the challenges that these laws and procedures pose to court staff, the judiciary, the practising Bar Association, vulnerable adults and children and their guardians and curators, and other professionals and service providers working with protected persons and wards.
