Planning on slipping quietly into retirement? Frederick A. O. Schwarz, Jr., has a message for you: Cancel that tee-time, and cash in those plane tickets. There’s a lot of good work to be done. Schwarz, a 64-year-old litigation partner with New York’s Cravath, Swaine & Moore, recently announced that he was leaving the firm to join the staff of the Brennan Center for Justice, a public interest law firm affiliated with the New York University School of Law.

Schwarz talked about his ideas recently with reporter Douglas McCollam.
