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. Hail to our Constitutional Law Expert in the Executive Office! “What you’re not paying attention to is the fact that I just took an action to change the law,” Obama said.

  2. What is this, the Ind Supreme Court thinking that there is a separation of powers and limited enumerated powers as delegated by a dusty old document? Such eighteen century thinking, so rare and unwanted by the elites in this modern age. Dictate to us, dictate over us, the massess are chanting! George Soros agrees. Time to change with times Ind Supreme Court, says all President Snows. Rule by executive decree is the new black.

  3. I made the same argument before a commission of the Indiana Supreme Court and then to the fedeal district and federal appellate courts. Fell flat. So very glad to read that some judges still beleive that evidentiary foundations matter.

  4. KUDOS to the Indiana Supreme Court for realizing that some bureacracies need to go to the stake. Recall what RWR said: "No government ever voluntarily reduces itself in size. Government programs, once launched, never disappear. Actually, a government bureau is the nearest thing to eternal life we'll ever see on this earth!" NOW ... what next to this rare and inspiring chopping block? Well, the Commission on Gender and Race (but not religion!?!) is way overdue. And some other Board's could be cut with a positive for State and the reputation of the Indiana judiciary.

  5. During a visit where an informant with police wears audio and video, does the video necessary have to show hand to hand transaction of money and narcotics?
