|Write an analysis of Kendra’s Law (New York), and Laura’s Law (California), and any other state’s law (if you wish to include another state) regarding court ordered outpatient treatment also known as assisted outpatient treatment. Include when an individual may need court ordered outpatient treatment (why would someone ask the court to order outpatient treatment?) In your analysis of these laws, also examine the criteria for court ordered outpatient treatment (who can be court-ordered to treatment?), what kind of treatment the court can order (i.e. does it include forced medication, counseling, etc.?), what happens if someone does not comply with the court order, and any other pertinent information. There are many similarities and some differences between these laws so be sure to discuss the similarities and differences in your analysis. Please do not include the tragedies of Kendra Webdale and Laura Wilcox in your analysis.
•In general, how are the criteria for outpatient involuntary commitment (assisted outpatient treatment) different from the criteria for inpatient involuntary commitment (also known as civil commitment or involuntary hospitalization)? In other words, what are the legal standards for civil commitment (inpatient hospitalization) versus those for assisted outpatient treatment?
