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. Such things are no more elections than those in the late, unlamented Soviet Union.

  2. It appears the police and prosecutors are allowed to change the rules halfway through the game to suit themselves. I am surprised that the congress has not yet eliminated the right to a trial in cases involving any type of forensic evidence. That would suit their foolish law and order police state views. I say we eliminate the statute of limitations for crimes committed by members of congress and other government employees. Of course they would never do that. They are all corrupt cowards!!!

  3. Poor Judge Brown probably thought that by slavishly serving the godz of the age her violations of 18th century concepts like due process and the rule of law would be overlooked. Mayhaps she was merely a Judge ahead of her time?

  4. in a lawyer discipline case Judge Brown, now removed, was presiding over a hearing about a lawyer accused of the supposedly heinous ethical violation of saying the words "Illegal immigrant." (IN re Barker) http://www.in.gov/judiciary/files/order-discipline-2013-55S00-1008-DI-429.pdf .... I wonder if when we compare the egregious violations of due process by Judge Brown, to her chiding of another lawyer for politically incorrectness, if there are any conclusions to be drawn about what kind of person, what kind of judge, what kind of apparatchik, is busy implementing the agenda of political correctness and making off-limits legit advocacy about an adverse party in a suit whose illegal alien status is relevant? I am just asking the question, the reader can make own conclsuion. Oh wait-- did I use the wrong adjective-- let me rephrase that, um undocumented alien?

  5. of course the bigger questions of whether or not the people want to pay for ANY bussing is off limits, due to the Supreme Court protecting the people from DEMOCRACY. Several decades hence from desegregation and bussing plans and we STILL need to be taking all this taxpayer money to combat mostly-imagined "discrimination" in the most obviously failed social program of the postwar period.
