Committee ready to explore new home for ISBA, ICLEF, IBF

Back to TopCommentsE-mailPrintBookmark and Share
A committee of 10 people is now tasked with finding a new, common home for three pillar organizations of the Indiana legal community.

The mission is to find a single facility that the Indiana State Bar Association, Indiana Continuing Legal Education Foundation, and the Indiana Bar Foundation can share.

Prior to 2003, all three shared a roof. But the ISBA moved to the fifth floor of One Indiana Square to be on its own, leaving ICLEF and the IBF at 230 E. Ohio St. Leases on both locations expire in 2011, but this is the year to lay the groundwork for a new, common location, according to ISBA president Richard Eynon.

Past ISBA president Jim Riley has agreed to chair the committee. Members include: Mike Bishop, Jim Casey, and Executive Director Chuck Dunlap on the IBF side; ICLEF members include board members Linda Meier and Andrew Soschnick, as well as Executive Director Tom von Kamecke; and Clyde Compton, Marianne Owens, and Executive Director Tom Pyrz for the ISBA.

While the committee hasn ;t met yet, Eynon said he expects that to happen soon following the annual spring retreat to Las Vegas next week. Several members of the committee, including Riley, plan to attend the retreat, and Eynon hopes to discuss the issue there.

Eynon has previously said the committee ;s main priority will be researching facility needs and whether new construction or existing real estate is the best option. However, the committee will also focus on how all three entities co-exist and what can be done to better increase functions for the state ;s legal community.

  1. I have had an ongoing custody case for 6 yrs. I should have been the sole legal custodial parent but was a victim of a vindictive ex and the system biasedly supported him. He is an alcoholic and doesn't even have a license for two yrs now after his 2nd DUI. Fast frwd 6 yrs later my kids are suffering poor nutritional health, psychological issues, failing in school, have NO MD and the GAL could care less, DCS doesn't care. The child isn't getting his ADHD med he needs and will not succeed in life living this way. NO one will HELP our family.I tried for over 6 yrs. The judge called me an idiot for not knowing how to enter evidence and the last hearing was 8 mths ago. That in itself is unjust! The kids want to be with their Mother! They are being alienated from her and fed lies by their Father! I was hit in a car accident 3 yrs ago and am declared handicapped myself. Poor poor way to treat the indigent in Indiana!

  2. The Indiana DOE released the 2015-2016 school grades in Dec 2016 and my local elementary school is a "C" grade school. Look at the MCCSC boundary maps and how all of the most affluent neighborhoods have the best performance. It is no surprise that obtaining residency in the "A" school boundaries cost 1.5 to 3 times as much. As a parent I should have more options than my "C" school without needing to pay the premium to live in the affluent parts of town. If the charter were authorized by a non-religious school the plaintiffs would still be against it because it would still be taking per-pupil money from them. They are hiding behind the guise of religion as a basis for their argument when this is clearly all about money and nothing else.

  3. This is a horrible headline. The article is about challenging the ability of Grace College to serve as an authorizer. 7 Oaks is not a religiously affiliated school

  4. Congratulations to Judge Carmichael for making it to the final three! She is an outstanding Judge and the people of Indiana will benefit tremendously if/when she is chosen.

  5. The headline change to from "religious" to "religious-affiliated" is still inaccurate and terribly misleading.
