Several Indiana legal organizations are accepting nominations for awards given by their groups. All have July deadlines.

The Indiana Judges Association is now taking nominations for this year’s Commendation for Excellence in Public Information and Education. Two awards – one to a judge and one to a journalist – are given to nominees who have helped inform the public about the work of the Indiana courts.

More information and nomination forms can be found on the court's website.  Nominations are due July 29.

The Indianapolis Bar Association’s Women & the Law Division is seeking nominations of successful and accomplished female attorneys for its 2011 Antoinette Dakin Leach Award.

The award is named after the first woman admitted to the Indiana bar. It’s given to a central Indiana female attorney who exemplifies the determination and successes of Leach and is a pioneer or trailblazer in the community.

Nominations are due July 31. More information and the nomination form are online.

The Indiana State Bar Association is accepting nominations for awards that will be given during its annual meeting in French Lick in October. Awards include the Civility Awards, Gale M. Phelps Award, and Outstanding Judge Award. All nominations are due July 20. A complete list of awards that are open for nomination along with more information and the criteria for each are available on the ISBA’s website.

  1. Cannabis is GOOD for our PEOPLE and GOOD for our STATE... 78% would like to see legal access to the product line for better Hoosier Heath. There is a 25% drop in PAIN KILLER Overdoses in states where CANNABIS is legal.

  2. This article is excellent and should be required reading for all attorneys and would-be attorneys, regardless of age or experience. I've caught myself committing several of the errors mentioned.

  3. Bill Satterlee is, indeed, a true jazz aficionado. Part of my legal career was spent as an associate attorney with Hoeppner, Wagner & Evans in Valparaiso. Bill was instrumental (no pun intended) in introducing me to jazz music, thereby fostering my love for this genre. We would, occasionally, travel to Chicago on weekends and sit in on some outstanding jazz sessions at Andy's on Hubbard Street. Had it not been for Bill's love of jazz music, I never would have had the good fortune of hearing it played live at Andy's. And, most likely, I might never have begun listening to it as much as I do. Thanks, Bill.

  4. The child support award is many times what the custodial parent earns, and exceeds the actual costs of providing for the children's needs. My fiance and I have agreed that if we divorce, that the children will be provided for using a shared checking account like this one(http://www.mediate.com/articles/if_they_can_do_parenting_plans.cfm) to avoid the hidden alimony in Indiana's child support guidelines.

  5. Fiat justitia ruat caelum is a Latin legal phrase, meaning "Let justice be done though the heavens fall." The maxim signifies the belief that justice must be realized regardless of consequences.
