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. He did not have an "unlicensed handgun" in his pocket. Firearms are not licensed in Indiana. He apparently possessed a handgun without a license to carry, but it's not the handgun that is licensed (or registered).

  2. Once again, Indiana's legislature proves how friendly it is to monopolies. This latest bill by Hershman demonstrates the lengths Indiana's representatives are willing to go to put big business's (especially utilities') interests above those of everyday working people. Maassal argues that if the technology (solar) is so good, it will be able to compete on its own. Too bad he doesn't feel the same way about the industries he represents. Instead, he wants to cut the small credit consumers get for using solar in order to "add a 'level of certainty'" to his industry. I haven't heard of or seen such a blatant money-grab by an industry since the days when our federal, state, and local governments were run by the railroad. Senator Hershman's constituents should remember this bill the next time he runs for office, and they should penalize him accordingly.

  3. From his recent appearance on WRTV to this story here, Frank is everywhere. Couldn't happen to a nicer guy, although he should stop using Eric Schnauffer for his 7th Circuit briefs. They're not THAT hard.

  4. They learn our language prior to coming here. My grandparents who came over on the boat, had to learn English and become familiarize with Americas customs and culture. They are in our land now, speak ENGLISH!!

  5. @ Rebecca D Fell, I am very sorry for your loss. I think it gives the family solace and a bit of closure to go to a road side memorial. Those that oppose them probably did not experience the loss of a child or a loved one.
