5 p.m. Video Conference. Many members of the “boomer” generation of attorneys are or will be transitioning from the full-time practice of law. What’s ahead? Volunteer work, pursuit of neglected hobbies, a new and different second career? This dramatic life change presents many challenges. It has significant emotional and financial implications for the lawyer, the lawyer’s family, and the broader community. Doing it right requires planning, good advice, and sharing with others. This Chancellor’s Forum is designed to help.
The keynote speaker is Ida Abbott, Esq., who has many years of experience counselling retiring lawyers and other professionals. She has synthesized her learnings and advice in a recent book called Retirement by Design. Many retiring attorneys are interested in pro bono options, and Joseph A. Sullivan, Esq., the highly esteemed Director of Pro Bono Programs at Troutman Pepper LLP,
will provide important information on, among other things, PA’s Emeritus Rule. Ayodele Gansallo, Esq., senior staff attorney at HIAS who oversees volunteers, will speak from the perspective of a local legal services organization, emphasizing what makes a successful volunteer. Lynn A. Marks, Esq., co-coordinator of the Public Interest Alum Network, will serve as moderator.
