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. Why in the world would someone need a person to correct a transcript when a realtime court reporter could provide them with a transcript (rough draft) immediately?

  2. This article proved very enlightening. Right ahead of sitting the LSAT for the first time, I felt a sense of relief that a score of 141 was admitted to an Indiana Law School and did well under unique circumstances. While my GPA is currently 3.91 I fear standardized testing and hope that I too will get a good enough grade for acceptance here at home. Thanks so much for this informative post.

  3. No, Ron Drake is not running against incumbent Larry Bucshon. That’s totally wrong; and destructively misleading to say anything like that. All political candidates, including me in the 8th district, are facing voters, not incumbents. You should not firewall away any of voters’ options. We need them all now more than ever. Right? Y’all have for decades given the Ds and Rs free 24/7/365 coverage of taxpayer-supported promotion at the expense of all alternatives. That’s plenty of head-start, money-in-the-pocket advantage for parties and people that don’t need any more free immunities, powers, privileges and money denied all others. Now it’s time to play fair and let voters know that there are, in fact, options. Much, much better, and not-corrupt options. Liberty or Bust!

  4. A great idea! There is absolutely no need to incarcerate HRC's so-called "super predators" now that they can be adequately supervised on the streets by the BLM czars.

  5. One of the only qualms I have with this article is in the first paragraph, that heroin use is especially dangerous because it is highly addictive. All opioids are highly addictive. It is why, after becoming addicted to pain medications prescribed by their doctors for various reasons, people resort to heroin. There is a much deeper issue at play, and no drug use should be taken lightly in this category.
