Leadership academy

The Indiana State Bar Association is accepting applications for its inaugural Leadership Development Academy, which will begin in January 2012. The program is limited to 25 Indiana lawyers who have been admitted to practice for less than 15 years and are members of the state bar in good standing.

The bar’s board of governors adopted a resolution in January 2011 to establish a leadership forum that will foster leadership skills in lawyers. The ISBA Leadership Development Academy will feature speakers from a variety of disciplines discussing the principles and techniques of effective leadership.

Applicants must be able to attend all academy sessions across the state. Session dates are: Jan. 19-21, Feb. 13-14, March 8-9, April 12-13, and May 17-18, 2012. The program fee of $950, which is due after applicants are notified, includes meals for all sessions. Scholarships are available for those demonstrating need. Two copies of the completed application, along with a current résumé, must be submitted to Catheryne Pully and postmarked by Oct. 31. Applications will be accepted at the ISBA office or may be sent via standard mail to the Indiana State Bar Association, One Indiana Square, Suite 530, Indianapolis, IN 46204. Applicants will be informed by Nov. 30 if they are selected.

The opening retreat in January is at Fort Harrison State Park in Indianapolis. The next month, Session 1 at the State Capitol in Indianapolis, will focus on state government and the media. Session 2 will be held in March at Indiana University Northwest in Gary and will focus on the importance of diversity in leadership, with remarks by former Indiana Attorney General Karen Freeman-Wilson. Muscatatuck Urban Training Center in Butlerville is the site of Session 3 in April. The Indiana National Guard will host this session, and attendees will hear from the FBI, Immigration & Customs Enforcement, and other public safety organizations. Session 4 will be in May in Fort Wayne and will focus on education and local government.•

  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?
