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.

  3. The practitioners and judges who hail E-filing as the Saviour of the West need to contain their respective excitements. E-filing is federal court requires the practitioner to cram his motion practice into pigeonholes created by IT people. Compound motions or those seeking alternative relief are effectively barred, unless the practitioner wants to receive a tart note from some functionary admonishing about the "problem". E-filing is just another method by which courts and judges transfer their burden to practitioners, who are the really the only powerless components of the system. Of COURSE it is easier for the court to require all of its imput to conform to certain formats, but this imposition does NOT improve the quality of the practice of law and does NOT improve the ability of the practitioner to advocate for his client or to fashion pleadings that exactly conform to his client's best interests. And we should be very wary of the disingenuous pablum about the costs. The courts will find a way to stick it to the practitioner. Lake County is a VERY good example of this rapaciousness. Any one who does not believe this is invited to review the various special fees that system imposes upon practitioners- as practitioners- and upon each case ON TOP of the court costs normal in every case manually filed. Jurisprudence according to Aldous Huxley.

  4. Any attorneys who practice in federal court should be able to say the same as I can ... efiling is great. I have been doing it in fed court since it started way back. Pacer has its drawbacks, but the ability to hit an e-docket and pull up anything and everything onscreen is a huge plus for a litigator, eps the sole practitioner, who lacks a filing clerk and the paralegal support of large firms. Were I an Indiana attorney I would welcome this great step forward.

  5. Can we get full disclosure on lobbyist's payments to legislatures such as Mr Buck? AS long as there are idiots that are disrespectful of neighbors and intent on shooting fireworks every night, some kind of regulations are needed.
