Five new positions with the Indiana Supreme Court have been created to help kick-start a statewide case management system.

The court ;s Judicial Technology and Automation Committee has posted the five openings and is accepting applications until March 30 for staff attorney, configuration and modification analyst, software quality assurance (SQA) lead analyst, court reporter SME, and a training and help desk specialist.

Each position is dedicated to designing, developing, and implementing the largest technology project in the history of Indiana courts, according to Mary DePrez, director and counsel for trial court technology. In November, the Supreme Court entered into a $13.4 million contract with Tyler Technologies in Dallas to connect all the state ;s county courts and make sure the 1.5 million cases can be managed statewide.

This process began in 2002, when the JTAC and the JTAC Statewide Governing Board jointly recommended the process based on an automation effort. Four years later, more companies were proven capable of creating such systems, some of which have been implemented in other states.

To start the implementation, Monroe County and Washington Township Small Claims Court are assisting with designing the system for the state, DePrez said.

These five positions could be the first of more as the project advances, she said.

Those interested in applying for any of these positions can send resumes to jtacjobs@jtac.in.gov or JTAC Jobs, Indiana Supreme Court, Division of State Court Administration, 115 W. Washington St., Suite 1080, Indianapolis, IN 46204. Phone calls or faxes are not accepted. Additional information about the positions is available online at www.in.gov/judiciary/jtac/jobs.html.

  1. "associates are becoming more mercenary. The path to partnership has become longer and more difficult so they are chasing short-term gains like high compensation." GOOD FOR THEM! HELL THERE OUGHT TO BE A UNION!

  2. Let's be honest. A glut of lawyers out there, because law schools have overproduced them. Law schools dont care, and big law loves it. So the firms can afford to underpay them. Typical capitalist situation. Wages have grown slowly for entry level lawyers the past 25 years it seems. Just like the rest of our economy. Might as well become a welder. Oh and the big money is mostly reserved for those who can log huge hours and will cut corners to get things handled. More capitalist joy. So the answer coming from the experts is to "capitalize" more competition from nonlawyers, and robots. ie "expert systems." One even hears talk of "offshoring" some legal work. thus undercutting the workers even more. And they wonder why people have been pulling for Bernie and Trump. Hello fools, it's not just the "working class" it's the overly educated suffering too.

  3. And with a whimpering hissy fit the charade came to an end ... http://baltimore.cbslocal.com/2016/07/27/all-charges-dropped-against-all-remaining-officers-in-freddie-gray-case/ WHISTLEBLOWERS are needed more than ever in a time such as this ... when politics trump justice and emotions trump reason. Blue Lives Matter.

  4. "pedigree"? I never knew that in order to become a successful or, for that matter, a talented attorney, one needs to have come from good stock. What should raise eyebrows even more than the starting associates' pay at this firm (and ones like it) is the belief systems they subscribe to re who is and isn't "fit" to practice law with them. Incredible the arrogance that exists throughout the practice of law in this country, especially at firms like this one.

  5. Finally, an official that realizes that reducing the risks involved in the indulgence in illicit drug use is a great way to INCREASE the problem. What's next for these idiot 'proponents' of needle exchange programs? Give drunk drivers booze? Give grossly obese people coupons for free junk food?
