New attorneys able to apply for ISBA meeting scholarship

Attorneys new to the practice of law have the opportunity to apply for a scholarship to attend the Indiana State Bar Association’s annual meeting.

The Joseph T. Helling Memorial Scholarship Fund is designed to cover the expenses of sending a lawyer and his or her family to the state bar’s fall meeting. Expenses covered include the registration fee, lodging, meals and mileage.

Any attorney who has practiced fewer than five years may apply for the scholarship to attend the annual meeting Oct. 16-18 at French Lick Resort. Applications are due July 1.

The Indiana Bar Foundation administers this fund and scholarship. Applications are available at the foundation’s website, www.inbf.org, or by calling 317-269-7864.

IBF releases annual reportdetailing programs and awards

The Indiana Bar Foundation has released its 2012 annual report, detailing its activities and financial results for the year. In the introductory letter, foundation President J. Mark Robinson and Executive Director Charles Dunlap described 2012 as a “resoundingly positive year in spite of continuing financial challenges.”

The foundation’s effort to bolster civic education in the state focused mostly on the We The People program. Through teamwork and competitions, this program teaches students how the U.S. Constitution applies to modern-day events. Also, the IBF highlighted the pro bono activities of both attorneys and law firms.

For 2012, the foundation’s total revenue reached $1.92 million. The bulk of that – $1.23 million – came from contributions. Expenditures were $1.84 million, with most of the funds, $1.21 million, going to support the IBF’s programs.•

  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

  3. Don't believe me, listen to Pacino: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z6bC9w9cH-M

  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?
