Back to TopE-mailPrintBookmark and Share

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. Don't we have bigger issues to concern ourselves with?

  2. Anyone who takes the time to study disciplinary and bar admission cases in Indiana ... much of which is, as a matter of course and by intent, off the record, would have a very difficult time drawing lines that did not take into account things which are not supposed to matter, such as affiliations, associations, associates and the like. Justice Hoosier style is a far departure than what issues in most other parts of North America. (More like Central America, in fact.) See, e.g., http://www.theindianalawyer.com/indiana-attorney-illegally-practicing-in-florida-suspended-for-18-months/PARAMS/article/42200 When while the Indiana court system end the cruel practice of killing prophets of due process and those advocating for blind justice?

  3. Wouldn't this call for an investigation of Government corruption? Chief Justice Loretta Rush, wrote that the case warranted the high court’s review because the method the Indiana Court of Appeals used to reach its decision was “a significant departure from the law.” Specifically, David wrote that the appellate panel ruled after reweighing of the evidence, which is NOT permissible at the appellate level. **But yet, they look the other way while an innocent child was taken by a loving mother who did nothing wrong"

  4. Different rules for different folks....

  5. I would strongly suggest anyone seeking mediation check the experience of the mediator. There are retired judges who decide to become mediators. Their training and experience is in making rulings which is not the point of mediation.
