IBA: Bar Leader Series - A 'Must Have'

Back to TopCommentsE-mailPrintBookmark and Share

In a time when so many are working to set themselves apart from the masses in the profession of law, the IndyBar’s Bar Leader Series is a “must have.” More than ever networking skills and leadership qualities are vital to success, so a program such as Bar Leader, which is designed solely to hone the skills, is invaluable. Applications for Class IX, which will hold sessions September 2011 thru May 2012, are now available on www.indybar.org.

Any Indianapolis Bar Association attorney member who will be in his or her third to 10th year of practice is encouraged to apply. Series participants attend an afternoon long program once a month after the opening overnight session. The focus of each month’s program is community awareness and leadership skill enhancement. Judge Jane Magnus-Stinson is chairing Class IX, and former Indiana Supreme Court Justice Ted Boehm is moderating the monthly discussion among the participants.

The Indianapolis community at large also benefits from the program as a very important component of the series involves series participants undertaking a community project in small groups. This effort requires the small groups to budget their finances – generously provided by the Indianapolis Bar Foundation – while working together in leadership roles, communicating with outside sources and finding a passion/project to give back to a community in a manner meaningful to them.

Nearly 200 Indianapolis lawyers have graduated from this award-winning program since its inception. Those participants have grown and built relationships through the experience and most are currently serving the Association and other community organizations in highly visible positions. A dynamic and successful Class VIII of the IndyBar Bar Leader Series graduate next month

What can IndyBar members do to enhance the Bar Leader Series? Consider whether you or someone you know should apply and become part of the Bar Leader tradition. Bringing together highly motivated young lawyers ensures that our community’s future leaders from the bar will have the tools to successfully guide us. The Bar certainly hopes it will inspire rededicated volunteer effort through the Indianapolis Bar Association. Leadership and giving back to our community are two things that are absolute “must haves.”•

  1. Unfortunately, the court doesn't understand the difference between ebidta and adjusted ebidta as they clearly got the ruling wrong based on their misunderstanding

  2. A common refrain in the comments on this website comes from people who cannot locate attorneys willing put justice over retainers. At the same time the judiciary threatens to make pro bono work mandatory, seemingly noting the same concern. But what happens to attorneys who have the chumptzah to threatened the legal status quo in Indiana? Ask Gary Welch, ask Paul Ogden, ask me. Speak truth to power, suffer horrendously accordingly. No wonder Hoosier attorneys who want to keep in good graces merely chase the dollars ... the powers that be have no concerns as to those who are ever for sale to the highest bidder ... for those even willing to compromise for $$$ never allow either justice or constitutionality to cause them to stand up to injustice or unconstitutionality. And the bad apples in the Hoosier barrel, like this one, just keep rotting.

  3. I am one of Steele's victims and was taken for $6,000. I want my money back due to him doing nothing for me. I filed for divorce after a 16 year marriage and lost everything. My kids, my home, cars, money, pension. Every attorney I have talked to is not willing to help me. What can I do? I was told i can file a civil suit but you have to have all of Steelers info that I don't have. Of someone can please help me or tell me what info I need would be great.

  4. It would appear that news breaking on Drudge from the Hoosier state (link below) ties back to this Hoosier story from the beginning of the recent police disrespect period .... MCBA president Cassandra Bentley McNair issued the statement on behalf of the association Dec. 1. The association said it was “saddened and disappointed” by the decision not to indict Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson for shooting Michael Brown. “The MCBA does not believe this was a just outcome to this process, and is disheartened that the system we as lawyers are intended to uphold failed the African-American community in such a way,” the association stated. “This situation is not just about the death of Michael Brown, but the thousands of other African-Americans who are disproportionately targeted and killed by police officers.” http://www.thestarpress.com/story/news/local/2016/07/18/hate-cops-sign-prompts-controversy/87242664/

  5. What form or who do I talk to about a d felony which I hear is classified as a 6 now? Who do I talk to. About to get my degree and I need this to go away it's been over 7 years if that helps.
