Bar Crawl

Bar Crawl highlights bar association news around the state. Indiana Lawyer strives to include bar association news and trends in its regular stories, and we would like to include more news from specialty and county bars. If you’d like to submit an update about your bar association or a photo from an event your bar association has hosted, or if you have questions about having your bar association news included in the newspaper, please send it to Marilyn Odendahl at modendahl@ibj.com, along with contact information for any follow-up questions at least two weeks prior to the issue date.

IndyBar taking applications for exam prep course

Law students planning to take the Indiana bar exam in February may apply for a scholarship to the Indianapolis Bar Association’s winter 2014 IndyBar review session.

The bar exam preparation course is a comprehensive program designed to give students the knowledge and practice needed to pass the bar exam.

Two scholarships are available to IndyBar law student members and selection is based on financial need, with consideration also given to the student’s activity in the association’s law student division. The application deadline is Nov. 1.

For more information, visit the bar association’s website at www.indybar.org.

Recognition awards to honor pro bono and education work

The Indianapolis Bar Association is taking nominations for the Dr. John Finney Jr. Award for Excellence in Legal Education and the IndyBar Pro Bono Awards.

The Pro Bono Awards honor practicing lawyers, retired lawyers, in-house and corporate counsel, law firms, law students and paralegals who have made outstanding contributions to deliver volunteer legal assistance to the poor and disadvantaged.

The Finney education award recognizes an individual who has made significant and unique contributions to further legal education.

Nominations are due Sept. 30, 2013. The award will be presented during the recognition luncheon on Nov. 8.

To get a nomination form or register for the luncheon, visit www.indybar.org.

State bar seeking volunteers for association’s committees

Indiana State Bar Association members are being encouraged to volunteer their time and effort to work on one of organization’s committees.

Openings are available on both the standing and special committees. All members interested in serving on a committee should fill out the form, indicating first and second preferences, and return the information to ISBA Executive Director Tom Pyrz by Aug. 23.

The committees perform a range of work from monitoring the activities that affect the federal court system and promoting health among judges, lawyers and their staffs to facilitating the delivery of high-quality continuing legal education programs.

  1. I love this, Dave! Many congrats to you! We've come a long way from studying for the bar together! :)

  2. This outbreak illustrates the absurdity of the extreme positions taken by today's liberalism, specifically individualism and the modern cult of endless personal "freedom." Ebola reminds us that at some point the person's own "freedom" to do this and that comes into contact with the needs of the common good and "freedom" must be curtailed. This is not rocket science, except, today there is nonstop propaganda elevating individual preferences over the common good, so some pundits have a hard time fathoming the obvious necessity of quarantine in some situations....or even NATIONAL BORDERS...propagandists have also amazingly used this as another chance to accuse Western nations of "racism" which is preposterous and offensive. So one the one hand the idolatry of individualism has to stop and on the other hand facts people don't like that intersect with race-- remain facts nonetheless. People who respond to facts over propaganda do better in the long run. We call it Truth. Sometimes it seems hard to find.

  3. It would be hard not to feel the Kramers' anguish. But Catholic Charities, by definition, performed due diligence and held to the statutory standard of care. No good can come from punishing them for doing their duty. Should Indiana wish to change its laws regarding adoption agreements and or putative fathers, the place for that is the legislature and can only apply to future cases. We do not apply new laws to past actions, as the Kramers seem intent on doing, to no helpful end.

  4. I am saddened to hear about the loss of Zeff Weiss. He was an outstanding member of the Indianapolis legal community. My thoughts are with his family.

  5. There is a compromise to wearing socks that may cause discomfort to the foot, and it is from XOSOX. They are currently running a Kickstarter campaign and, typing "xosox" and "kickstarter" into your search engine will get you there. You can also find their Facebook page.
