A webinar presented by the IBA Senior Lawyers' Committee

A career in the law is all-consuming. The years fly by and suddenly, ‘retirement age’ is looming. Many lawyers resist retirement, fearing a loss of money, status, identity and community. When your life has been dominated by law, how can you let it go?

This session will discuss the various issues related to retirement, including the following questions:

  • Why do many lawyers resist retirement?
  • What are the effects of age discrimination in the legal profession?
  • What can older lawyers do for your law firm?
  • How do you adapt to retirement?
