In the first part of the book Howard Eglit discusses ageism and the changing of attitudes toward citizens as they age. The second part explores aging as it relates to the legal system, including issues of particular importance to seniors, increasing litigation involving the elderly, lawyer/elderly client issues, possible discrimination in jury selection, and the issues of competence of elderly judges.
