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, 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.

  2. I have a degree at law, recent MS in regulatory studies. Licensed in KS, admitted b4 S& 7th circuit, but not to Indiana bar due to political correctness. Blacklisted, nearly unemployable due to hostile state action. Big Idea: Headwinds can overcome, esp for those not within the contours of the bell curve, the Lego Movie happiness set forth above. That said, even without the blacklisting for holding ideas unacceptable to the Glorious State, I think the idea presented above that a law degree open many vistas other than being a galley slave to elitist lawyers is pretty much laughable. (Did the law professors of Indiana pay for this to be published?)

  4. Joe, you might want to do some reading on the fate of Hoosier whistleblowers before you get your expectations raised up.

  5. I had a hospital and dcs caseworker falsify reports that my child was born with drugs in her system. I filed a complaint with the Indiana department of health....and they found that the hospital falsified drug screens in their investigation. Then I filed a complaint with human health services in Washington DC...dcs drug Testing is unregulated and is indicating false positives...they are currently being investigated by human health services. Then I located an attorney and signed contracts one month ago to sue dcs and Anderson community hospital. Once the suit is filed I am taking out a loan against the suit and paying a law firm to file a writ of mandamus challenging the courts jurisdiction to invoke chins case against me. I also forwarded evidence to a u.s. senator who contacted hhs to push an investigation faster. Once the lawsuit is filed local news stations will be running coverage on the situation. Easy day....people will be losing their jobs soon...and judge pancol...who has attempted to cover up what has happened will also be in trouble. The drug testing is a kids for cash and federal funding situation.
