Auction benefits domestic violence victims

Back to TopE-mailPrintBookmark and Share

The Women's Law Caucus at Indiana University Maurer School of Law - Bloomington has raised $11,000 for two local organizations working with victims of domestic violence.

Auctioning off packages donated by law school faculty and staff - including a Trivial Pursuit competition and an afternoon of golf with school staff - and packages from local businesses, the caucus raised more than $11,000 for Bloomington's Middle Way House and Protective Order Project at the Feb. 5 auction. This year's auction beat last year's record-setting turnout.

Middle Way House provides extensive support to domestic violence victims, including housing, child care, and legal assistance. The Protective Order Project, co-founded by now-Dean Lauren Robel in 1989, is a student-directed organization based at the law school that combines the legal expertise of faculty, students, and volunteer attorneys to help clients get protective orders, and utilizes other legal methods to help domestic violence victims.

  1. Based on several recent Indy Star articles, I would agree that being a case worker would be really hard. You would see the worst of humanity on a daily basis; and when things go wrong guess who gets blamed??!! Not biological parent!! Best of luck to those who entered that line of work.

  2. I was looking through some of your blog posts on this internet site and I conceive this web site is rattling informative ! Keep on posting . dfkcfdkdgbekdffe

  4. Law school is social control the goal to produce a social product. As such it began after the Revolution and has nearly ruined us to this day: "“Scarcely any political question arises in the United States which is not resolved, sooner or later, into a judicial question. Hence all parties are obliged to borrow, in their daily controversies, the ideas, and even the language, peculiar to judicial proceedings. As most public men [i.e., politicians] are, or have been, legal practitioners, they introduce the customs and technicalities of their profession into the management of public affairs. The jury extends this habitude to all classes. The language of the law thus becomes, in some measure, a vulgar tongue; the spirit of the law, which is produced in the schools and courts of justice, gradually penetrates beyond their walls into the bosom of society, where it descends to the lowest classes, so that at last the whole people contract the habits and the tastes of the judicial magistrate.” ? Alexis de Tocqueville, Democracy in America

  5. Attorney? Really? Or is it former attorney? Status with the Ind St Ct? Status with federal court, with SCOTUS? This is a legal newspaper, or should I look elsewhere?
