The Senior Lawyer Section has focused this year on its members being lawyers in transition. Stephen Gallagher wrote in our magazine, The Senior Lawyer, on “Lawyer Well Being,” addressing the appropriateness of the Section looking at the issue of senior lawyers in transition. After discussions with NYSBA’s Young Lawyers Section and General Practice Section, and support from their leadership, we contracted with Steve to develop programing for regional Gatherings around the state. We held the first gathering with the Monroe County Bar because of support from their Young Lawyers Section and Senior Lawyers Committee. Held in early October, it got great reviews from attendees. The seniors in attendance loved the format of short presentations followed by breakout groups to discuss and comment on each program section. It was for many in attendance their first opportunity to talk with contemporaries about transitioning, how they might go about selling their practice, and what life might be like if they weren’t practicing any more. Most commented that they had never talked about these issues with others. We have heard from other regional bars about an interest in holding joint Gatherings with our Section. But first, we are going to discuss this type of programing at the Annual Meeting.
