About Us

The Hawaii State Bar Association explored the idea of creating a Senior Counsel Division during its 2008 and 2009 bar strategic planning process. The Senior Counsel Division is a bar initiative to serve and engage our members who are age 50 and older, which comprises half of our membership.

During the bar's strategic planning, a key focus was to look to ways to both serve and engage this segment of the bar. Thus, a planning committee was formed to explore developing a Senior Counsel Division (SCD). The division was formally established April 23, 2009 upon the HSBA Board's approval of the SCD Bylaws
