2015-2016 Commission on Law and Aging

(The pdf for the issue in which this article appears is available for download: (Bifocal, Vol. 36, Issue 6).)


Each September 1, a new roster of commissioners is appointed by the ABA president. Most commissioners serve for multiple years with a handful of new faces starting in any given year. This year, we have a new Chair and six new commissioners; you will find them to be a diverse and highly expert group in their individual disciplines. The full roster of this year’s Commission is below. The next issue of Bifocal will provide short biographies of our new additions.
