What will you learn?
In 2006, 37.3 million Americans were 65 and older; this equates to one in every 8 Americans. In 2030 this number will increase to approximately 71.5 million older persons, which is more than two times the numbers in 2000. It is estimated that a quarter of a million America's practicing lawyers are already over the age of 55. This number is expected to triple over the next two decades.
People in the United States are living longer than ever before. The average life expectancy is now approaching 80 years. There has been a change in the way our health care system manages its patients, and the focus has shifted to making our later years healthier and more productive. We are living longer and healthier lives, and people are postponing retirement for emotional and financial reasons. The legal profession is going to have attorneys practicing well beyond previously expected retirement age of 65-70 with many people choosing encore careers.
