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. Good riddance to this dangerous activist judge

  2. What is the one thing the Hoosier legal status quo hates more than a whistleblower? A lawyer whistleblower taking on the system man to man. That must never be rewarded, must always, always, always be punished, lest the whole rotten tree be felled.

  3. I want to post this to keep this tread alive and hope more of David's former clients might come forward. In my case, this coward of a man represented me from June 2014 for a couple of months before I fired him. I knew something was wrong when he blatantly lied about what he had advised me in my contentious and unfortunate divorce trial. His impact on the proceedings cast a very long shadow and continues to impact me after a lengthy 19 month divorce. I would join a class action suit.

  4. The dispute in LB Indiana regarding lake front property rights is typical of most beach communities along our Great Lakes. Simply put, communication to non owners when visiting the lakefront would be beneficial. The Great Lakes are designated navigational waters (including shorelines). The high-water mark signifies the area one is able to navigate. This means you can walk, run, skip, etc. along the shores. You can't however loiter, camp, sunbath in front of someones property. Informational signs may be helpful to owners and visitors. Our Great Lakes are a treasure that should be enjoyed by all. PS We should all be concerned that the Long Beach, Indiana community is on septic systems.

  5. Dear Fan, let me help you correct the title to your post. "ACLU is [Left] most of the time" will render it accurate. Just google it if you doubt that I am, err, "right" about this: "By the mid-1930s, Roger Nash Baldwin had carved out a well-established reputation as America’s foremost civil libertarian. He was, at the same time, one of the nation’s leading figures in left-of-center circles. Founder and long time director of the American Civil Liberties Union, Baldwin was a firm Popular Fronter who believed that forces on the left side of the political spectrum should unite to ward off the threat posed by right-wing aggressors and to advance progressive causes. Baldwin’s expansive civil liberties perspective, coupled with his determined belief in the need for sweeping socioeconomic change, sometimes resulted in contradictory and controversial pronouncements. That made him something of a lightning rod for those who painted the ACLU with a red brush." http://www.harvardsquarelibrary.org/biographies/roger-baldwin-2/ "[George Soros underwrites the ACLU' which It supports open borders, has rushed to the defense of suspected terrorists and their abettors, and appointed former New Left terrorist Bernardine Dohrn to its Advisory Board." http://www.discoverthenetworks.org/viewSubCategory.asp?id=1237 "The creation of non-profit law firms ushered in an era of progressive public interest firms modeled after already established like the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People ("NAACP") and the American Civil Liberties Union ("ACLU") to advance progressive causes from the environmental protection to consumer advocacy." https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cause_lawyering
