The American Bar Association is calling on law firms to abandon their mandatory retirement policies. In a vote Monday by the ABA's House of Delegates at its annual meeting, the 413,000-member organization took the official position of urging law firms that require their attorneys to retire at a certain age to rethink those policies. Proponents of the measure argued that law firms with such policies operate contrary to almost every other workplace where mandatory retirement violates age discrimination laws.
