North Carolina Bar Association Creates the Transitioning Lawyers Commission for Lawyers with Cognitive Impairment

What was once a North Carolina Bar Association task force has transformed into a full-fledged Commission aimed at intervening with lawyers dealing with cognitive impairment, helping them to end their careers on a high note.

While each case varies, the program offers methods such as a “frank conversation,” memory testing and referrals for neuropsychological testing.
