knightAre you ready to learn what you really need to know to practice defense law? Well, the DTCI is ready to teach you! The DTCI will be holding its annual one-day Rookie Seminar for new lawyers on Friday, April 19, at The Montage at Allison Pointe in Indianapolis. Join us for a full day of learning the skills that will take your practice to new levels! 8.0 credits (including 1.0 ethics) have been requested.

Besides the participation of many of the stars of the Indiana defense bar, the lunch hour will feature a DTCI Past Presidents Roundtable. Together, the five former presidents enjoy nearly a century of practical knowledge and insight, and they will be sharing it all with the DTCI young lawyers. The roundtable will feature Marty Hollingsworth (1997) Bingham Greenebaum Doll; John C. Trimble (1999) Lewis Wagner; Jeff McKean (2008) McKean Law Firm; Tom Schultz (2009) Schultz & Pogue; and Mary Reeder (2010) Reid Hospital.

Registration fees: $150 DTCI Members, $100 Paralegals, $200 Non-Members (This $200 fee includes a one-year free membership in DTCI. New DTCI members also receive a one-year free membership in DRI, the national defense lawyers association, including a free DRI seminar registration.)

Registration material and additional information are available online at www.dtci.org. Click “Events” and then the link to the Rookie Seminar Brochure. Executive Director Lisa Mortier (lmortier@dtci.org) is happy to answer any questions you may have.•
