Abstract

Fifty-three percent of workers worldwide surveyed in 2008 reported they would rather work and earn less, but have a happy stress-free fulfilling life. For the 78 million baby boomers and their pre- and post-boom colleagues this desire has resulted in a phenomenon that has been labeled "encore jobs," This essay describes opportunities for fulfillment for tax lawyers, young and not so young, as volunteers and fellows.

Keywords: community assistance, pro bono, volunteer, taxation, low-income, poverty law, fulfillment, encore careers, encore jobs
