Bar Crawl

Bar Crawl is Indiana Lawyer’s section highlighting bar association news around the state. The IL 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 Kelly Lucas at klucas@ibj.com, along with contact information for any follow-up questions at least two weeks in advance of the issue date.

EBA plans for Law Day celebration

The Evansville Bar Association will celebrate Law Day 2011 in late April. On April 28, mock trials and a student lunch will take place. On April 29, a Law Day celebration will commemorate the EBA’s 100th anniversary, including the unveiling and dedication of the fully restored Randall T. Shepard Courtroom.

The courtroom was previously home to Vanderburgh Superior Court. It was named for Evansville native Chief Justice Randall T. Shepard to recognize his support of the Evansville legal community and his fundraising efforts for the courtroom’s restoration.

The courtroom will likely be used for some court hearings, as well as teen court, memorial events, and other special events for the Evansville legal community.

The EBA has also been working on an oral history project with help from the EBA’s retired executive director, Susan Helfrich. When completed, the history of the Evansville legal community – and how various trials and legal events have shaped the community at large – will be included in a display at the historic courthouse and available online for classrooms to use.

A local high school has also been working on a video project for the EBA. The bar association gave video editing and recording equipment to the school to use for its project, and the school will keep the equipment for future projects.

For more information about EBA’s Law Day activities, contact EBA Executive Director Susan Vollmer at susan@evvbar.org.•

  1. For many years this young man was "family" being my cousin's son. Then he decided to ignore my existence and that of my daughter who was very hurt by his actions after growing up admiring, Jason. Glad he is doing well, as for his opinion, if you care so much you wouldn't ignore the feelings of those who cared so much about you for years, Jason.

  2. Good riddance to this dangerous activist judge

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. 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.
