The term “vulnerable people” lacks a formal definition, but most scholars agree that a vulnerable person is an adult who is disabled by age, illness, mental disability, or other debilitation and is unable to take care of him or herself, including from exploitation or other harm. Although traditional safeguards are available through the legal system, it does not provide complete protection for vulnerable people. New safeguards are emerging, but adoption of those safeguards has been slow. How can a public administrator help?
To prepare for this Discussion:
Review Chapter 11, “Family Law,” in The Study of Law: A Critical Thinking Approach (4th ed.). Reflect on the traditional legal methods available to vulnerable people.
Review the article “Factors Contributing to Disproportionality in the Child Welfare System: Views From the Legal Community.” Consider how the current child welfare system is failing to protect vulnerable people and what can be done to change that.
Review the article “Civil Protective Order Effectiveness: Justice or Just a Piece of Paper?” Reflect on the limitations of the modern protective order system. Consider how that system is both protecting and failing to protect vulnerable people.
Consider what a public administrator can do outside traditional legal methods to protect vulnerable people.
With these thoughts in mind:
Post a 300 word explanation by Wednesday February 15, 2017 of what a public administrator can do outside traditional legal methods to protect vulnerable people.
