BLE needs second site to fit applicants

There are a lot of people who want to become attorneys. So many people, in fact, that the Indiana Board of Law Examiners has had to find a second location to administer the July test.

Executive Director Linda Loepker said this is the first time the BLE has had two testing locations. For the last five years, the test has been administered at Primo West in Plainfield. This year, due about 100 more bar applicants, the BLE had to find another location. Now, some will take the test at Primo’s sister location in Indianapolis, Primo South.

Loepker said the dimensions and size of the facilities are the same, which is an advantage in duplicating testing conditions. They are also the only users of the facility at the time of the test, which allows the BLE to control noise and other situations.

If you are scheduled to take the test in July and your last name is begins with the letters A through L, you are to take the test at Primo West. Those with the last names beginning with the letters M through Z are to take it at Primo South. Loepker said there’s no advantage to taking the exam at one site as opposed to the other.

  1. I have had an ongoing custody case for 6 yrs. I should have been the sole legal custodial parent but was a victim of a vindictive ex and the system biasedly supported him. He is an alcoholic and doesn't even have a license for two yrs now after his 2nd DUI. Fast frwd 6 yrs later my kids are suffering poor nutritional health, psychological issues, failing in school, have NO MD and the GAL could care less, DCS doesn't care. The child isn't getting his ADHD med he needs and will not succeed in life living this way. NO one will HELP our family.I tried for over 6 yrs. The judge called me an idiot for not knowing how to enter evidence and the last hearing was 8 mths ago. That in itself is unjust! The kids want to be with their Mother! They are being alienated from her and fed lies by their Father! I was hit in a car accident 3 yrs ago and am declared handicapped myself. Poor poor way to treat the indigent in Indiana!

  2. The Indiana DOE released the 2015-2016 school grades in Dec 2016 and my local elementary school is a "C" grade school. Look at the MCCSC boundary maps and how all of the most affluent neighborhoods have the best performance. It is no surprise that obtaining residency in the "A" school boundaries cost 1.5 to 3 times as much. As a parent I should have more options than my "C" school without needing to pay the premium to live in the affluent parts of town. If the charter were authorized by a non-religious school the plaintiffs would still be against it because it would still be taking per-pupil money from them. They are hiding behind the guise of religion as a basis for their argument when this is clearly all about money and nothing else.

  3. This is a horrible headline. The article is about challenging the ability of Grace College to serve as an authorizer. 7 Oaks is not a religiously affiliated school

  4. Congratulations to Judge Carmichael for making it to the final three! She is an outstanding Judge and the people of Indiana will benefit tremendously if/when she is chosen.

  5. The headline change to from "religious" to "religious-affiliated" is still inaccurate and terribly misleading.
