Dr. Jonathan Canick
Departments of Psychiatry and Neurology California Pacific Medical Center
Assistant Clinical Professor at the University of California, San Francisco
Ronald E. Mallen
Partner, Hinshaw & Culbertson LLP
• Nearly half of all California attorneys are over 55. A State Bar task force is worried about increased risk of cognitive impairment and
is considering steps to manage it.
• Dr. Canick is a neuropsychologist who specializes in the early identification, assessment, and treatment of cognitive decline in
high-functioning individuals and the evaluation of cognitive capacity. Dr. Canick will discuss the differences between normal aging and
cognitive decline associated with dementia and other disorders. He will address myths about aging, successful aging, and why early
detection of dementia in high-functioning individuals is so complex. Dr. Canick will also discuss memory problems that normally occur
with age, as well as the benefits of a mature mind.
• Ronald Mallen, a leader in the field of professional competence and legal malpractice will discuss whether and to what extent
age- related cognitive impairment represents an increasing risk among attorneys. He will discuss ethical duties when impairment in
attorneys of whatever nature manifests itself.
