On August 2, 2022, Steve gave an updated version of his seminar "Inventories and Accounts for Minors & Disabled Persons in Cook County, Illinois in 2022" at Chicago Volunteer Legal Services (CVLS). The presentation, and all materials, are available online at no charge. CVLS volunteers may view the seminar for 1 hour of CLE credit.
