Ending the Discriminatory Consequences of Age Bias in the Legal Profession

In this timely and important program, Andrea S. Kramer and Alton B. Harris explain the nature and operation of age stereotypes, those about both younger and older lawyers, which result in discriminatory biases against persons at both ends of the age spectrum. They convincingly explain why it is so important for legal organizations to combat age discrimination and then present a series of effective, practical practices, policies, and techniques that legal organizations can use to eliminate age bias and improve generational harmony. They also review the Age Discrimination in Employment Act of 1967, the status of litigation under this Act, and the likely impact of ABA Model Rule 8.4(g) on age discrimination. Topics include: the nature and operation of age stereotypes and the biases that flow from them; how these age biases limit career opportunities for both older and younger lawyers; recognizing how gender stereotypes interact with age stereotypes to particularly disadvantage women lawyers over 45 years old; and practical, effective techniques and practices that will allow attorneys and their legal organizations to eliminate the discriminatory consequences of age bias.
