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 have had an ongoing custody case for 6 yrs. I should have been the sole legal custodial parent but was a victim of a vindictive ex and the system biasedly supported him. He is an alcoholic and doesn't even have a license for two yrs now after his 2nd DUI. Fast frwd 6 yrs later my kids are suffering poor nutritional health, psychological issues, failing in school, have NO MD and the GAL could care less, DCS doesn't care. The child isn't getting his ADHD med he needs and will not succeed in life living this way. NO one will HELP our family.I tried for over 6 yrs. The judge called me an idiot for not knowing how to enter evidence and the last hearing was 8 mths ago. That in itself is unjust! The kids want to be with their Mother! They are being alienated from her and fed lies by their Father! I was hit in a car accident 3 yrs ago and am declared handicapped myself. Poor poor way to treat the indigent in Indiana!

  2. The Indiana DOE released the 2015-2016 school grades in Dec 2016 and my local elementary school is a "C" grade school. Look at the MCCSC boundary maps and how all of the most affluent neighborhoods have the best performance. It is no surprise that obtaining residency in the "A" school boundaries cost 1.5 to 3 times as much. As a parent I should have more options than my "C" school without needing to pay the premium to live in the affluent parts of town. If the charter were authorized by a non-religious school the plaintiffs would still be against it because it would still be taking per-pupil money from them. They are hiding behind the guise of religion as a basis for their argument when this is clearly all about money and nothing else.

  3. This is a horrible headline. The article is about challenging the ability of Grace College to serve as an authorizer. 7 Oaks is not a religiously affiliated school

  4. Congratulations to Judge Carmichael for making it to the final three! She is an outstanding Judge and the people of Indiana will benefit tremendously if/when she is chosen.

  5. The headline change to from "religious" to "religious-affiliated" is still inaccurate and terribly misleading.
