"Lawyers are not very good at retiring."
This statement gives rise to an intriguing in-depth program studying issues related to retirement planning, normal aging, and cognitive impairment. Lawyers are practicing longer because we are living longer. Gone are the days where one could assume that death and retirement were hand in hand.
This program is designed to explore challenges being faced in all professions, the impact of cognitive impairment and of normal aging on lawyers’ competency, and to challenge lawyers to prepare for and look forward to life in retirement.
- Retiring Well – Physically, mentally and emotionally preparing for retirement.
- Protecting clients and the profession from lawyers practicing too long in terms of competency.
- Examining the signs and symptoms of cognitive decline – normal aging v. cognitive impairment.
- Positive News – Thoughts, ideas and suggestions for positively approaching retirement and for retiring well.
- Ways the legal profession can support its members in learning how to retire well.
