At its July 12 meeting, the Board of Governors of The Missouri Bar voted to establish a Senior Lawyers Committee for lawyers 60 years of age or older. The committee will become effective for the 2019-2020 bar year, which begins at the conclusion of this year’s Annual Meeting.

The Board acted on a recommendation made by its Board Committee/Division Assessment Committee. That committee had previously conducted a survey of members of The Missouri Bar age 55 and older to gauge interest and support for the establishment of a Senior Lawyers Committee. Upon direction of the Board of Governors, the committee reviewed and evaluated the results of that survey, leading to its recommendation that such a committee be added.

As an open enrollment committee, the Senior Lawyers Committee will welcome any Missouri Bar member 60 years of age or older who wishes to join. In addition, all lawyers who responded to the survey will be provided with notice of the committee’s creation.
