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.”•

  2. Unlike the federal judge who refused to protect me, the Virginia State Bar gave me a hearing. After the hearing, the Virginia State Bar refused to discipline me. VSB said that attacking me with the court ADA coordinator had, " all the grace and charm of a drive-by shooting." One does wonder why the VSB was able to have a hearing and come to that conclusion, but the federal judge in Indiana slammed the door of the courthouse in my face.

  3. I agree. My husband has almost the exact same situation. Age states and all.

  4. Thanks Jim. We surprised ourselves with the first album, so we did a second one. We are releasing it 6/30/17 at the HiFi. The reviews so far are amazing! www.itsjustcraig.com Skope Mag: It’s Just Craig offers a warm intimacy with the tender folk of “Dark Corners”. Rather lovely in execution, It’s Just Craig opts for a full, rich sound. Quite ornate instrumentally, the songs unfurl with such grace and style. Everything about the album feels real and fully lived. By far the highlight of the album are the soft smooth reassuring vocals whose highly articulate lyrics have a dreamy quality to them. Stories emerge out of these small snapshots of reflective moments.... A wide variety of styles are utilized, with folk anchoring it but allowing for chamber pop, soundtrack work, and found electronics filtering their way into the mix. Without a word, It’s Just Craig sets the tone of the album with the warble of “Intro”. From there things get truly started with the hush of “Go”. Building up into a great structure, “Go” has a kindness to it. Organs glisten in the distance on the fragile textures of “Alone” whose light melody adds to the song’s gorgeousness. A wonderful bloom of color defines the spaciousness of “Captain”. Infectious grooves take hold on the otherworldly origins of “Goodnight” with precise drum work giving the song a jazzy feeling. Hazy to its very core is the tragedy of “Leaving Now”. By far the highlight of the album comes with the closing impassioned “Thirty-Nine” where many layers of sound work together possessing a poetic quality.

  5. Andrew, if what you report is true, then it certainly is newsworthy. If what you report is false, then it certainly is newsworthy. Any journalists reading along??? And that same Coordinator blew me up real good as well, even destroying evidence to get the ordered wetwork done. There is a story here, if any have the moxie to go for it. Search ADA here for just some of my experiences with the court's junk yard dog. https://www.scribd.com/document/299040062/Brown-ind-Bar-memo-Pet-cert Yep, drive by shootings. The lawyers of the Old Dominion got that right. Career executions lacking any real semblance of due process. It is the ISC way ... under the bad shepard's leadership ... and a compliant, silent, boot-licking fifth estate.
