By Rebecca Geyer, Drewry Simmons Vornehm LLP

April is a busy month for the Indianapolis Bar Foundation. The IBF awards its annual $35,000 Impact Fund grant to a deserving community initiative; Trivia Night took place on April 16th (see page 2 for details); the Attorney Apprentice Program, which provides skills-based training to new and less experienced lawyers ended on April 19th; lawyers provided pro bono legal services through the Low Asset Will Project and Ask A Lawyer programs; and thousands of scholarship dollars are being or have been awarded for IndyBar Review, Bench Bar, and the Attorney Apprentice Program.

What do these initiatives have in common? They are all funded by your donations to the Indianapolis Bar Foundation.

In 2013, the Foundation launched its Impact of One Campaign, which helped more than 1,000 central Indiana families in April alone. Just one person, one act or one helping hand can have a tremendous impact on the Indianapolis community with your support of the Indianapolis Bar Foundation. Each supporter and each gift, big or small, champions the IBF’s mission to advance justice and lead positive change in Indianapolis. Without that support, IBF programs and services crucial to the advancement of the profession and the betterment of the community would simply cease to exist.

We hope you will join the IBF’s Impact of One Campaign and consider volunteering an hour of your time or donating the equivalent of one billable hour to the IBF to fund these necessary and worthwhile endeavors. Your contribution to the IBF is a direct investment in the success and excellence of the legal profession in Indianapolis. Don’t wait another moment. Visit www.indybar.org to donate today. •

  1. I'm not sure what's more depressing: the fact that people would pay $35,000 per year to attend an unaccredited law school, or the fact that the same people "are hanging in there and willing to follow the dean’s lead in going forward" after the same school fails to gain accreditation, rendering their $70,000 and counting education worthless. Maybe it's a good thing these people can't sit for the bar.

  2. Such is not uncommon on law school startups. Students and faculty should tap Bruce Green, city attorney of Lufkin, Texas. He led a group of studnets and faculty and sued the ABA as a law student. He knows the ropes, has advised other law school startups. Very astute and principled attorney of unpopular clients, at least in his past, before Lufkin tapped him to run their show.

  3. Not that having the appellate records on Odyssey won't be welcome or useful, but I would rather they first bring in the stray counties that aren't yet connected on the trial court level.

  4. Aristotle said 350 bc: "The most hated sort, and with the greatest reason, is usury, which makes a gain out of money itself, and not from the natural object of it. For money was intended to be used in exchange, but not to increase at interest. And this term interest, which means the birth of money from money, is applied to the breeding of money because the offspring resembles the parent. Wherefore of an modes of getting wealth this is the most unnatural.

  5. Oh yes, lifetime tenure. The Founders gave that to the federal judges .... at that time no federal district courts existed .... so we are talking the Supreme Court justices only in context ....so that they could rule against traditional marriage and for the other pet projects of the sixties generation. Right. Hmmmm, but I must admit, there is something from that time frame that seems to recommend itself in this context ..... on yes, from a document the Founders penned in 1776: " He has refused his Assent to Laws, the most wholesome and necessary for the public good."
