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. Did someone not tell people who have access to the Chevy Volts that it has a gas engine and will run just like a normal car? The batteries give the Volt approximately a 40 mile range, but after that the gas engine will propel the vehicle either directly through the transmission like any other car, or gas engine recharges the batteries depending on the conditions.

  2. Catholic, Lutheran, even the Baptists nuzzling the wolf! http://www.judicialwatch.org/press-room/press-releases/judicial-watch-documents-reveal-obama-hhs-paid-baptist-children-family-services-182129786-four-months-housing-illegal-alien-children/ YET where is the Progressivist outcry? Silent. I wonder why?

  3. Thank you, Honorable Ladies, and thank you, TIL, for this interesting interview. The most interesting question was the last one, which drew the least response. Could it be that NFP stamps are a threat to the very foundation of our common law American legal tradition, a throwback to the continental system that facilitated differing standards of justice? A throwback to Star Chamber’s protection of the landed gentry? If TIL ever again interviews this same panel, I would recommend inviting one known for voicing socio-legal dissent for the masses, maybe Welch, maybe Ogden, maybe our own John Smith? As demographics shift and our social cohesion precipitously drops, a consistent judicial core will become more and more important so that Justice and Equal Protection and Due Process are yet guiding stars. If those stars fall from our collective social horizon (and can they be seen even now through the haze of NFP opinions?) then what glue other than more NFP decisions and TRO’s and executive orders -- all backed by more and more lethally armed praetorians – will prop up our government institutions? And if and when we do arrive at such an end … will any then dare call that tyranny? Or will the cost of such dissent be too high to justify?

  4. This is easily remedied, and in a fashion that every church sacrificing incense for its 501c3 status and/or graveling for government grants should have no problem with ..... just add this statue, http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Capitoline_she-wolf_Musei_Capitolini_MC1181.jpg entitled, "Jesus and Cousin John learn to suckle sustenance from the beloved Nanny State." Heckfire, the ACLU might even help move the statue in place then. And the art will certainly reflect our modern life, given the clergy's full-bellied willingness to accede to every whim of the new caesars. If any balk, just threaten to take away their government milk … they will quiet down straightaway, I assure you. Few, if any of them, are willing to cross the ruling elite as did the real J&J
