Your Credit Refresher

IndyBar educational programs offer an array of credit types:

• General Credits: Attorneys are required to attend at least six (6) hours of approved CLE per year and at least 36 hours of approved CLE per three-year cycle. Find more than 50 CLE programs open for registration at indybar.org/events.

• Ethics Credits: Attorneys are required to complete at least three (3) hours of approved ethics CLE at any point during each three-year compliance period. Search the IndyBar events calendar for Ethics credits at indybar.org/calendar.

• Non-Legal Subject Matter (NLS) Credits: The Commission approves courses for Non-Legal Subject Matter credit because, while they lack substantive legal content, they enhance an attendee’s proficiency in the attorney’s practice of law. Attorneys can report a maximum of 12 hours toward the three-year, 36-hour requirement using NLS courses.

• Distance Education: Distance Education is also known as online education. Attorneys can get six (6) hours per three-year period. Check out more than 100 programs in the IndyBar online CLE catalog at indybar.org/onlinecle.

• Continuing Mediation Education (CME) Credits: A registered mediator must complete a minimum of six (6) hours of Commission-approved continuing mediation education anytime during a three-year educational period. Looking for CME credits? Search the IndyBar events calendar for courses offering CME credit at indybar.org/calendar.

• Applied Professionalism Credit: The Commission has determined that all newly admitted lawyers must take a Commission- accredited six-hour applied professionalism course in their first three-year educational period. Mark your calendars for IndyBar’s next Applied Professionalism Course on Oct. 30 and register online at indybar.org/events.

  1. A traditional parade of attorneys? Really Evansville? Y'all need to get out more. When is the traditional parade of notaries? Nurses? Sanitation workers? Pole dancers? I gotta wonder, do throngs of admiring citizens gather to laud these marching servants of the constitution? "Show us your billing records!!!" Hoping some video gets posted. Ours is not a narcissistic profession by any chance, is it? Nah .....

  2. My previous comment not an aside at court. I agree with smith. Good call. Just thought posting here a bit on the if it bleeds it leads side. Most attorneys need to think of last lines of story above.

  4. He must be a Rethuglican, for if from the other side of the aisle such acts would be merely personal and thus not something that attaches to his professional life. AND ... gotta love this ... oh, and on top of talking dirty on the phone, he also, as an aside, guess we should mention, might be important, not sure, but .... "In addition to these allegations, Keaton was accused of failing to file an appeal after he collected advance payment from a client seeking to challenge a ruling that the client repay benefits because of unreported income." rimshot

  5. I am not a fan of some of the 8.4 discipline we have seen for private conduct-- but this was so egregious and abusive and had so many points of bad conduct relates to the law and the lawyer's status as a lawyer that it is clearly a proper and just disbarment. A truly despicable account of bad acts showing unfit character to practice law. I applaud the outcome.
