Committee ready to explore new home for ISBA, ICLEF, IBF

Back to TopCommentsE-mailPrintBookmark and Share
A committee of 10 people is now tasked with finding a new, common home for three pillar organizations of the Indiana legal community.

The mission is to find a single facility that the Indiana State Bar Association, Indiana Continuing Legal Education Foundation, and the Indiana Bar Foundation can share.

Prior to 2003, all three shared a roof. But the ISBA moved to the fifth floor of One Indiana Square to be on its own, leaving ICLEF and the IBF at 230 E. Ohio St. Leases on both locations expire in 2011, but this is the year to lay the groundwork for a new, common location, according to ISBA president Richard Eynon.

Past ISBA president Jim Riley has agreed to chair the committee. Members include: Mike Bishop, Jim Casey, and Executive Director Chuck Dunlap on the IBF side; ICLEF members include board members Linda Meier and Andrew Soschnick, as well as Executive Director Tom von Kamecke; and Clyde Compton, Marianne Owens, and Executive Director Tom Pyrz for the ISBA.

While the committee hasn ;t met yet, Eynon said he expects that to happen soon following the annual spring retreat to Las Vegas next week. Several members of the committee, including Riley, plan to attend the retreat, and Eynon hopes to discuss the issue there.

Eynon has previously said the committee ;s main priority will be researching facility needs and whether new construction or existing real estate is the best option. However, the committee will also focus on how all three entities co-exist and what can be done to better increase functions for the state ;s legal community.

  1. I'm not sure what's more depressing: the fact that people would pay $35,000 per year to attend an unaccredited law school, or the fact that the same people "are hanging in there and willing to follow the dean’s lead in going forward" after the same school fails to gain accreditation, rendering their $70,000 and counting education worthless. Maybe it's a good thing these people can't sit for the bar.

  2. Such is not uncommon on law school startups. Students and faculty should tap Bruce Green, city attorney of Lufkin, Texas. He led a group of studnets and faculty and sued the ABA as a law student. He knows the ropes, has advised other law school startups. Very astute and principled attorney of unpopular clients, at least in his past, before Lufkin tapped him to run their show.

  3. Not that having the appellate records on Odyssey won't be welcome or useful, but I would rather they first bring in the stray counties that aren't yet connected on the trial court level.

  4. Aristotle said 350 bc: "The most hated sort, and with the greatest reason, is usury, which makes a gain out of money itself, and not from the natural object of it. For money was intended to be used in exchange, but not to increase at interest. And this term interest, which means the birth of money from money, is applied to the breeding of money because the offspring resembles the parent. Wherefore of an modes of getting wealth this is the most unnatural.

  5. Oh yes, lifetime tenure. The Founders gave that to the federal judges .... at that time no federal district courts existed .... so we are talking the Supreme Court justices only in context ....so that they could rule against traditional marriage and for the other pet projects of the sixties generation. Right. Hmmmm, but I must admit, there is something from that time frame that seems to recommend itself in this context ..... on yes, from a document the Founders penned in 1776: " He has refused his Assent to Laws, the most wholesome and necessary for the public good."
