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. I work with some older lawyers in the 70s, 80s, and they are sharp as tacks compared to the foggy minded, undisciplined, inexperienced, listless & aimless "youths" being churned out by the diploma mill law schools by the tens of thousands. A client is generally lucky to land a lawyer who has decided to stay in practice a long time. Young people shouldn't kid themselves. Experience is golden especially in something like law. When you start out as a new lawyer you are about as powerful as a babe in the cradle. Whereas the silver halo of age usually crowns someone who can strike like thunder.

  2. YES I WENT THROUGH THIS BEFORE IN A DIFFERENT SITUATION WITH MY YOUNGEST SON PEOPLE NEED TO LEAVE US ALONE WITH DCS IF WE ARE NOT HURTING OR NEGLECT OUR CHILDREN WHY ARE THEY EVEN CALLED OUT AND THE PEOPLE MAKING FALSE REPORTS NEED TO GO TO JAIL AND HAVE A CLASS D FELONY ON THERE RECORD TO SEE HOW IT FEELS. I WENT THREW ALOT WHEN HE WAS TAKEN WHAT ELSE DOES THESE SCHOOL WANT ME TO SERVE 25 YEARS TO LIFE ON LIES THERE TELLING OR EVEN LE SAME THING LIED TO THE COUNTY PROSECUTOR JUST SO I WOULD GET ARRESTED AND GET TIME HE THOUGHT AND IT TURNED OUT I DID WHAT I HAD TO DO NOT PROUD OF WHAT HAPPEN AND SHOULD KNOW ABOUT SEEKING MEDICAL ATTENTION FOR MY CHILD I AM DISABLED AND SICK OF GETTING TREATED BADLY HOW WOULD THEY LIKE IT IF I CALLED APS ON THEM FOR A CHANGE THEN THEY CAN COME AND ARREST THEM RIGHT OUT OF THE SCHOOL. NOW WE ARE HOMELESS AND THE CHILDREN ARE STAYING WITH A RELATIVE AND GUARDIAN AND THE SCHOOL WON'T LET THEM GO TO SCHOOL THERE BUT WANT THEM TO GO TO SCHOOL WHERE BULLYING IS ALLOWED REAL SMART THINKING ON A SCHOOL STAFF.

  3. Family court judges never fail to surprise me with their irrational thinking. First of all any man who abuses his wife is not fit to be a parent. A man who can't control his anger should not be allowed around his child unsupervised period. Just because he's never been convicted of abusing his child doesn't mean he won't and maybe he hasn't but a man that has such poor judgement and control is not fit to parent without oversight - only a moron would think otherwise. Secondly, why should the mother have to pay? He's the one who made the poor decisions to abuse and he should be the one to pay the price - monetarily and otherwise. Yes it's sad that the little girl may be deprived of her father, but really what kind of father is he - the one that abuses her mother the one that can't even step up and do what's necessary on his own instead the abused mother is to pay for him???? What is this Judge thinking? Another example of how this world rewards bad behavior and punishes those who do right. Way to go Judge - NOT.

  4. Right on. Legalize it. We can take billions away from the drug cartels and help reduce violence in central America and more unwanted illegal immigration all in one fell swoop. cut taxes on the savings from needless incarcerations. On and stop eroding our fourth amendment freedom or whatever's left of it.

  5. "...a switch from crop production to hog production "does not constitute a significant change."??? REALLY?!?! Any judge that cannot see a significant difference between a plant and an animal needs to find another line of work.
