The ageism reflected in your article “ Hottest Practice Areas for Associates” was sad and depressing for the blatant ageism the recruiters reflect. Aside from being stupid, it is illegal. Don’t these lawyers understand that age discrimination is against the law? Maybe they need to hire some experienced labor lawyers. Additionally many older attorneys entering the profession have had extensive and varied business careers and can bring a wealth of experience and judgment that the young and inexperienced “ hotshots” they are recruiting cannot match. This experience is valuable to the long term interests of the firm — and its survival. But it is an old story. Our profession has been rife with ageism in recruitment for years, as I know from sad experience. That is why, I, an older attorney, who graduated with honors, have had to practice as a solo. And that is why I do plaintiff’s employment law. Stuart Case Connecticut
