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. I just wanted to point out that Congressman Jim Sensenbrenner, Senator Feinstein, former Senate majority leader Bill Frist, and former attorney general John Ashcroft are responsible for this rubbish. We need to keep a eye on these corrupt, arrogant, and incompetent fools.

  2. Well I guess our politicians have decided to give these idiot federal prosecutors unlimited power. Now if I guy bounces a fifty-dollar check, the U.S. attorney can intentionally wait for twenty-five years or so and have the check swabbed for DNA and file charges. These power hungry federal prosecutors now have unlimited power to mess with people. we can thank Wisconsin's Jim Sensenbrenner and Diane Feinstein, John Achcroft and Bill Frist for this one. Way to go, idiots.

  3. I wonder if the USSR had electronic voting machines that changed the ballot after it was cast? Oh well, at least we have a free media serving as vicious watchdog and exposing all of the rot in the system! (Insert rimshot)

  4. Jose, you are assuming those in power do not wish to be totalitarian. My experience has convinced me otherwise. Constitutionalists are nearly as rare as hens teeth among the powerbrokers "managing" us for The Glorious State. Oh, and your point is dead on, el correcta mundo. Keep the Founders’ (1791 & 1851) vision alive, my friend, even if most all others, and especially the ruling junta, chase only power and money (i.e. mammon)

  5. Hypocrisy in high places, absolute immunity handed out like Halloween treats (it is the stuff of which tyranny is made) and the belief that government agents are above the constitutions and cannot be held responsible for mere citizen is killing, perhaps has killed, The Republic. And yet those same power drunk statists just reel on down the hallway toward bureaucratic fascism.
