Indiana’s Judges and Lawyers Assistance Program is partnering with the American Bar Association Commission on Lawyer Assistance Programs to host this year’s national conference in October in Indianapolis.

The conference focuses on wellness, addictions, and mental-health issues. This year’s theme is “Lawyers Helping Lawyers since 1988.” Experts will present information on topics such as addiction and recovery; the aging of the profession; stress and compassion fatigue; and how to reach out to judges, lawyers, and law students. Speakers include Dr. Will Miller, a therapist, motivational speaker, and professor of communications at Purdue University.

The 23rd annual conference is at the Hyatt Regency in downtown Indianapolis Oct. 5-8. More information can be found online on the ABA’s website. Judicial officers who want to attend the conference on a scholarship from the Indiana Supreme Court can download an online application.

  4. It was all that kept us from tyranny. So sad that so few among the elite cared enough to guard the sacred trust. Nobody has a more sacred obligation to obey the law than those who make the law. Sophocles No man is above the law and no man is below it; nor do we ask any man's permission when we ask him to obey it. Obedience to the law is demanded as a right; not asked as a favor. Theodore Roosevelt That was the ideal ... here is the Hoosier reality: The King can do no wrong. Legal maxim From the Latin 'Rex non potest peccare'. When the President does it, that means that it is not illegal. Richard Nixon

  5. So men who think they are girls at heart can use the lady's potty? Usually the longer line is for the women's loo, so, the ladies may be the ones to experience temporary gender dysphoria, who knows? Is it ok to joke about his or is that hate? I may need a brainwash too, hey! I may just object to my own comment, later, if I get myself properly "oriented"
