Following the #FreeBritney movement and the very public breakdown of Britney Spears’ 13-year conservatorship in early 2022, the guardianship reform movement gained a new spokesperson. Was the Spears case unique, or did it simply put a shiny new face on very common and longstanding problems with guardianship? This presentation explores whether the Britney case could happen under Wisconsin guardianship laws as they exist today.
