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. Hail to our Constitutional Law Expert in the Executive Office! “What you’re not paying attention to is the fact that I just took an action to change the law,” Obama said.

  2. What is this, the Ind Supreme Court thinking that there is a separation of powers and limited enumerated powers as delegated by a dusty old document? Such eighteen century thinking, so rare and unwanted by the elites in this modern age. Dictate to us, dictate over us, the massess are chanting! George Soros agrees. Time to change with times Ind Supreme Court, says all President Snows. Rule by executive decree is the new black.

  3. I made the same argument before a commission of the Indiana Supreme Court and then to the fedeal district and federal appellate courts. Fell flat. So very glad to read that some judges still beleive that evidentiary foundations matter.

  4. KUDOS to the Indiana Supreme Court for realizing that some bureacracies need to go to the stake. Recall what RWR said: "No government ever voluntarily reduces itself in size. Government programs, once launched, never disappear. Actually, a government bureau is the nearest thing to eternal life we'll ever see on this earth!" NOW ... what next to this rare and inspiring chopping block? Well, the Commission on Gender and Race (but not religion!?!) is way overdue. And some other Board's could be cut with a positive for State and the reputation of the Indiana judiciary.

  5. During a visit where an informant with police wears audio and video, does the video necessary have to show hand to hand transaction of money and narcotics?
