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. What is this, the Ind Supreme Court thinking that there is a separation of powers and limited enumerated powers as delegated by a dusty old document? Such eighteen century thinking, so rare and unwanted by the elites in this modern age. Dictate to us, dictate over us, the massess are chanting! George Soros agrees. Time to change with times Ind Supreme Court, says all President Snows. Rule by executive decree is the new black.

  2. I made the same argument before a commission of the Indiana Supreme Court and then to the fedeal district and federal appellate courts. Fell flat. So very glad to read that some judges still beleive that evidentiary foundations matter.

  3. KUDOS to the Indiana Supreme Court for realizing that some bureacracies need to go to the stake. Recall what RWR said: "No government ever voluntarily reduces itself in size. Government programs, once launched, never disappear. Actually, a government bureau is the nearest thing to eternal life we'll ever see on this earth!" NOW ... what next to this rare and inspiring chopping block? Well, the Commission on Gender and Race (but not religion!?!) is way overdue. And some other Board's could be cut with a positive for State and the reputation of the Indiana judiciary.

  4. During a visit where an informant with police wears audio and video, does the video necessary have to show hand to hand transaction of money and narcotics?

  5. I will agree with that as soon as law schools stop lying to prospective students about salaries and employment opportunities in the legal profession. There is no defense to the fraudulent numbers first year salaries they post to mislead people into going to law school.
