Back to TopE-mailPrintBookmark and Share

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. I gave tempparry guardship to a friend of my granddaughter in 2012. I went to prison. I had custody. My daughter went to prison to. We are out. My daughter gave me custody but can get her back. She was not order to give me custody . but now we want granddaughter back from friend. She's 14 now. What rights do we have

  2. This sure is not what most who value good governance consider the Rule of Law to entail: "In a letter dated March 2, which Brizzi forwarded to IBJ, the commission dismissed the grievance “on grounds that there is not reasonable cause to believe that you are guilty of misconduct.”" Yet two month later reasonable cause does exist? (Or is the commission forging ahead, the need for reasonable belief be damned? -- A seeming violation of the Rules of Profession Ethics on the part of the commission) Could the rule of law theory cause one to believe that an explanation is in order? Could it be that Hoosier attorneys live under Imperial Law (which is also a t-word that rhymes with infamy) in which the Platonic guardians can do no wrong and never owe the plebeian class any explanation for their powerful actions. (Might makes it right?) Could this be a case of politics directing the commission, as celebrated IU Mauer Professor (the late) Patrick Baude warned was happening 20 years ago in his controversial (whisteblowing) ethics lecture on a quite similar topic: http://www.repository.law.indiana.edu/cgi/viewcontent.cgi?article=1498&context=ilj

  3. I have a case presently pending cert review before the SCOTUS that reveals just how Indiana regulates the bar. I have been denied licensure for life for holding the wrong views and questioning the grand inquisitors as to their duties as to state and federal constitutional due process.

  4. Here's an idea...how about we MORE heavily regulate the law schools to reduce the surplus of graduates, driving starting salaries up for those new grads, so that we can all pay our insane amount of student loans off in a reasonable amount of time and then be able to afford to do pro bono & low-fee work? I've got friends in other industries, radiology for example, and their schools accept a very limited number of students so there will never be a glut of new grads and everyone's pay stays high. For example, my radiologist friend's school accepted just six new students per year.

  5. I totally agree with John Smith.
