Update on Mandatory Retirement Policies at Law Firms

Law firm consultant and strategist Phyllis Weiss Haserot has regularly written on the subject of mandatory retirement policies at law firms on her Next Generation Next Destination blog. We've periodically written on the wisdom of mandatory retirement policies as well.

In her most recent post, Weiss Haserot notes that during its annual meeting session from August 13-14, 2007, the American Bar Association House of Delegates is expected to vote on Proposal 10A, a proposed resolution that calls for law firms to discontinue their mandatory retirement policies. Instead it proposes that firms evaluate senior partners on an individual basis "consistent with the firm's performance criteria."

We'll keep you posted.
