In This Issue…

  • From the Chair
    Read the message from Chair Timothy Howard to learn what the Senior Lawyers Section has been up to recently.
  • What happened to the senior lawyer listserve?
    Welcome to the new world of communicating with your fellow lawyers.
  • A trip to Israel
    As lawyers enter the “senior” phase of their professional careers, many start enjoying a few more personal days and looking forward to a bit more vacation time. But if you still crave a bit of adventure, consider an ISBA or IJA tour.
  • Book review: Testimony
    Unlike most of the Scott Turow's novels, Testimony does not take place so much in the court room, but it develops around an investigation during 2015 into the disappearance of some 400 gypsy refugees in Bosnia in 2004.
  • Pro bono anywhere
    With Illinois Legal Aid Online's Virtual Advice Clinic, lawyers can provide meaningful pro bono advice from their living rooms. Learn how you can volunteer!
  • Services at ISBA Mutual’s new Loop office
    If you’re downtown looking for a place to relax, have a cup of coffee and kill some time, consider stopping by ISBA Mutual’s office on the eighth floor at 20 S. Clark St. in downtown Chicago.
