Senior Lawyers

The Senior Lawyers Section applies the knowledge and experience of the profession to the promotion of the public good by serving the interests of not only senior lawyers, but also of seniors generally. It studies issues of concern to both groups and responds by producing programs and publications designed to explore and develop such issues, and advocates for appropriate responses when called for. All members of the ISBA in good standing, 60 years of age and over are eligible for membership.

If you are interested in joining the Senior Lawyers Section or for more information please contact the ISBA at 317-639-5465 or at 800-266-2581.
