The Indiana Board of Law Examiners executive director has been appointed executive secretary of the Council of Bar Admission Administrators.

Linda L. Loepker was recently appointed executive secretary of the CBAA until the position is eliminated at end of this year. She also was reappointed to the CBAA technology committee and the character and fitness committee. Loepker has served on both committees since 2008.

The CBAA is the principal interface between the council and the National Conference of Bar Examiners. It is composed of bar examiners and administrators, legal educators, and Supreme Court justices. The technology committee fosters technological advancements and how they relate to the bar admission process, while the character and fitness committee addresses trends in character issues of applicants throughout the nation and how individual states approach the trends.

Loepker was appointed executive director of the Indiana Supreme Court’s Board of Law Examiners in 2007. Prior to that, she worked for the Indiana Supreme Court’s Division of State Court Administration where she was a staff attorney and then director of Office and Employment Law Services. Loepker graduated with a B.A. from Valparaiso University and received her J.D. from Thomas M. Cooley Law School. She is licensed to practice in Michigan and Indiana, as well as the federal courts in each of those states.

  1. Other than a complete lack of any verifiable and valid historical citations to back your wild context-free accusations, you also forget to allege "ate Native American children, ate slave children, ate their own children, and often did it all while using salad forks rather than dinner forks." (gasp)

  2. "So we broke with England for the right to "off" our preborn progeny at will, and allow the processing plant doing the dirty deeds (dirt cheap) to profit on the marketing of those "products of conception." I was completely maleducated on our nation's founding, it would seem. (But I know the ACLU is hard at work to remedy that, too.)" Well, you know, we're just following in the footsteps of our founders who raped women, raped slaves, raped children, maimed immigrants, sold children, stole property, broke promises, broke apart families, killed natives... You know, good God fearing down home Christian folk! :/

  3. Who gives a rats behind about all the fluffy ranking nonsense. What students having to pay off debt need to know is that all schools aren't created equal and students from many schools don't have a snowball's chance of getting a decent paying job straight out of law school. Their lowly ranked lawschool won't tell them that though. When schools start honestly (accurately) reporting *those numbers, things will get interesting real quick, and the looks on student's faces will be priceless!

  4. Whilst it may be true that Judges and Justices enjoy such freedom of time and effort, it certainly does not hold true for the average working person. To say that one must 1) take a day or a half day off work every 3 months, 2) gather a list of information including recent photographs, and 3) set up a time that is convenient for the local sheriff or other such office to complete the registry is more than a bit near-sighted. This may be procedural, and hence, in the near-sighted minds of the court, not 'punishment,' but it is in fact 'punishment.' The local sheriffs probably feel a little punished too by the overwork. Registries serve to punish the offender whilst simultaneously providing the public at large with a false sense of security. The false sense of security is dangerous to the public who may not exercise due diligence by thinking there are no offenders in their locale. In fact, the registry only informs them of those who have been convicted.

  5. Unfortunately, the court doesn't understand the difference between ebidta and adjusted ebidta as they clearly got the ruling wrong based on their misunderstanding
