About the Program

This CLE program will explore competence issues in the context of the aging attorney population. While mental and physical issues impacting the elderly population are very common, few CLE programs discuss them in the context of an aging attorneys’ ability to perform legal services with competence.

This program will provide:

  • an overview of the physical and mental manifestation of cognitive impairments in elderly attorneys who still practice law (whether in private practice or in-house) and the inherent challenges and risks incidental to those impairments.
  • practical, real-life examples of not only what total mental impairment looks like but will also provide examples (and helpful guidance) on what someone on the precipice of being impaired looks like.

While it is relatively easy to spot an attorney who has completely lost physical capability and mental competence, it is very challenging to spot those in the gray area who have started their descent into concerning territory often exhibiting barely perceptible signs of incompetence.
