Volunteers Needed for Low Asset Wills Program

Volunteers are currently being sought for the IndyBar’s Low Asset Wills program, a pro bono initiative that endeavors to provide individuals in need of last wills and testaments and advance directives with free legal assistance.

Local social and legal service providers, as well as the IndyBar, advertise this program to the public. Financial applications from potential individuals to be served by the program will be accepted from January 1 until March 31, 2011.

Applications are financially screened and those qualifying will be matched with an attorney volunteer. The qualifying applicant will receive a letter with the attorney’s contact information. The attorney will receive a fax with the client’s information. The applicant will be responsible for contacting the attorney to set up an appointment.

Document templates will be provided electronically to each volunteer. Volunteers should be flexible as some of those who qualify for this program will not have unlimited access to transportation.

The time commitment is minimal–but the impact is great. Feedback shows that each client assignment takes about 3-5 hours of time. Contact Caren Chopp at cchopp@indybar.org or 269-2000 if you are interested in participating.•

  1. Frankly, it is tragic that you are even considering going to an expensive, unaccredited "law school." It is extremely difficult to get a job with a degree from a real school. If you are going to make the investment of time, money, and tears into law school, it should not be to a place that won't actually enable you to practice law when you graduate.

  2. As a lawyer who grew up in Fort Wayne (but went to a real law school), it is not that hard to find a mentor in the legal community without your school's assistance. One does not need to pay tens of thousands of dollars to go to an unaccredited legal diploma mill to get a mentor. Having a mentor means precisely nothing if you cannot get a job upon graduation, and considering that the legal job market is utterly terrible, these students from Indiana Tech are going to be adrift after graduation.

  3. 700,000 to 800,000 Americans are arrested for marijuana possession each year in the US. Do we need a new justice center if we decriminalize marijuana by having the City Council enact a $100 fine for marijuana possession and have the money go towards road repair?

  4. I am sorry to hear this.

  5. I tried a case in Judge Barker's court many years ago and I recall it vividly as a highlight of my career. I don't get in federal court very often but found myself back there again last Summer. We had both aged a bit but I must say she was just as I had remembered her. Authoritative, organized and yes, human ...with a good sense of humor. I also appreciated that even though we were dealing with difficult criminal cases, she treated my clients with dignity and understanding. My clients certainly respected her. Thanks for this nice article. Congratulations to Judge Barker for reaching another milestone in a remarkable career.
