Call for Involvement and Discussion on Graying of the Bar

David Giacalone, who previously posted at f/k/a this great post on the ethics of the demographic changes -- tidal wave -- just ahead with the bar (plus see ours here), since updated his post with a request for more discussion (and links).  David is asking for CLE and symposium involvement in placing this subject on the agenda nationwide, and for LAPs to consider this reality.  Also see his announcement below the fold.  [Alan Childress]

David writes:

Important Request for Follow-up (March 26, 2007): If you agree that this topic deserves more discussion and the focused attention of bar leaders, law firms, and individual lawyers, please let your local, state and national bar groups know you would like to see Ethics and the Graying of the Bar on the agenda of Continuing Legal Education programs (on professional responsibility, office management, retirement planning, etc.), and to see Aging-Competence Intervention actively incorporated into Lawyer Assistance Programs.
