CLE for 'Talk to Lawyer' Oct. 12

Back to TopE-mailPrintBookmark and Share

In conjunction with its "Talk to a Lawyer Today" program Martin Luther King Day, the Indiana State Bar Association is offering a 6-hour CLE training seminar, "Amazingly Interesting CLE for Attorneys with a Heart," in Indianapolis Oct. 12.

Attorneys who agree to volunteer for a two-hour shift on Martin Luther King Day answering legal questions from the public and agree to take one civil pro bono case from Heartland Pro Bono Council will be able to attend the training seminar for free. Prosecutors, public defenders, and other government or inactive attorneys who agree to take a two-hour shift must pay $25 for the program. Attorneys who just want the CLE credit and don't want to commit to taking a case or volunteering for the program can attend for $200.

The seminar will include new topics to help attorneys answer the types of questions asked by the general public, such as low-income tax questions, parenting-time guidelines, and how to access public assistance. The live seminar will be videotaped and replayed at various sites throughout the state in the coming months.

The seminar will be from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. at the Indiana Continuing Legal Education Forum, 230 E. Ohio St., Suite 300, Indianapolis. The 8th annual "Talk to a Lawyer Today" program is Jan. 18, 2010.

To sign up, the registration form can be mailed to Laurie Beltz Boyd at Heartland Pro Bono Council, 151 N. Delaware St., Suite 1800, Indianapolis, 46204; faxed to (317) 631-9775; or e-mailed to Laurie.Boyd@ilsi.net. Contact Boyd with any questions at (317) 631-9410, ext. 2267.

  1. Well, maybe it's because they are unelected, and, they have a tendency to strike down laws by elected officials from all over the country. When you have been taught that "Democracy" is something almost sacred, then, you will have a tendency to frown on such imperious conduct. Lawyers get acculturated in law school into thinking that this is the very essence of high minded government, but to people who are more heavily than King George ever did, they may not like it. Thanks for the information.

  2. I pd for a bankruptcy years ago with Mr Stiles and just this week received a garnishment from my pay! He never filed it even though he told me he would! Don't let this guy practice law ever again!!!

  3. Excellent initiative on the part of the AG. Thankfully someone takes action against predators taking advantage of people who have already been through the wringer. Well done!

  4. Conour will never turn these funds over to his defrauded clients. He tearfully told the court, and his daughters dutifully pledged in interviews, that his first priority is to repay every dime of the money he stole from his clients. Judge Young bought it, much to the chagrin of Conour’s victims. Why would Conour need the $2,262 anyway? Taxpayers are now supporting him, paying for his housing, utilities, food, healthcare, and clothing. If Conour puts the money anywhere but in the restitution fund, he’s proved, once again, what a con artist he continues to be and that he has never had any intention of repaying his clients. Judge Young will be proven wrong... again; Conour has no remorse and the Judge is one of the many conned.

  5. Pass Legislation to require guilty defendants to pay for the costs of lab work, etc as part of court costs...
