Elaine M. Epstein, a partner at Todd & Weld LLP and a graduate of Northern University School of Law, participated in the law school's Women in the Law “Ask-the-Expert” Program by responding to the question, “How does ageism play out in the profession?”
Ms. Epstein remarked that, “I view ageism as less of a destructive force in the practice of law than in some other professions.” Her article discussed the impact of an attorney's maturity on colleagues, judges, juries, and clients, and the challenges to those approaching retirement. Elaine concluded by saying, “I still strongly encourage women to enter the profession, even at ‘non traditional' ages.”
