The American Civil Liberties Union of Indiana’s annual dinner this year will honor Irving L. Fink, an attorney who helped found the organization and Indiana Legal Services.

The Oct. 16 dinner begins at 7 p.m. in the Indiana University – Purdue University Indianapolis Student Center, 4th Floor, 420 University Blvd., with a public reception beginning an hour earlier. The keynote speaker is Claire Buffie, an Indiana native who is the current reigning Miss New York. She graduated from Ball State University and is an advocate for equal rights.

That same day is the annual Student Conference at Indiana University School of Law – Indianapolis’ Inlow Hall. The conference theme is “The Life of Jane Addams,” a pioneering social worker, outspoken women’s suffragist, anti-war protestor, founding member of the ACLU and NAACP, and the first woman to win the Nobel Peace Prize. There will also be workshops to raise awareness of rights and to promote freedom. The conference kicks off at 8 a.m. and ends at 4:30 p.m.

Registration for the Student Conference is $25 for everyone and includes parking; $75 for students who want to attend both the conference and dinner, and $100 for those without a student ID. Registration is available online on the ACLU of Indiana’s website. Registration and payment must be received by Oct. 6.

  1. Based on several recent Indy Star articles, I would agree that being a case worker would be really hard. You would see the worst of humanity on a daily basis; and when things go wrong guess who gets blamed??!! Not biological parent!! Best of luck to those who entered that line of work.

  2. I was looking through some of your blog posts on this internet site and I conceive this web site is rattling informative ! Keep on posting . dfkcfdkdgbekdffe

  4. Law school is social control the goal to produce a social product. As such it began after the Revolution and has nearly ruined us to this day: "“Scarcely any political question arises in the United States which is not resolved, sooner or later, into a judicial question. Hence all parties are obliged to borrow, in their daily controversies, the ideas, and even the language, peculiar to judicial proceedings. As most public men [i.e., politicians] are, or have been, legal practitioners, they introduce the customs and technicalities of their profession into the management of public affairs. The jury extends this habitude to all classes. The language of the law thus becomes, in some measure, a vulgar tongue; the spirit of the law, which is produced in the schools and courts of justice, gradually penetrates beyond their walls into the bosom of society, where it descends to the lowest classes, so that at last the whole people contract the habits and the tastes of the judicial magistrate.” ? Alexis de Tocqueville, Democracy in America

  5. Attorney? Really? Or is it former attorney? Status with the Ind St Ct? Status with federal court, with SCOTUS? This is a legal newspaper, or should I look elsewhere?
