Have you ever wished there was a manual for your relationships; your kids; your job? Law students are no exception, so the IBA created the What You Need to Know series.

Currently broken into three programs, throughout the school year, these sessions are carefully constructed to offer no-nonsense concepts and strategies on the tough topics facing all students including; transitioning into law school; how to prepare for exams and craft the ‘A’ answer; and of course facing the rigors of the bar exam.

Earlier this year, the first two sessions on transitioning into law school and succeeding on exams were very well received. Holly Wanzer of Jocham Hardin was once again thanked by a grateful student body, toting that her programs were the ‘best sessions on the subjects’ of the many they had attended and that were offered by the school. She also repeats her sessions for the evening students, so no one misses out on her great advice.

The final session of the series, What You Need to Know about the Bar Exam, will be held in March as a part of the Spring Bar Application Clinic as well as in June for summer associates at local firms. A valuable part of the clinic, which helps students complete their bar applications, students will get help deciphering the lengthy requirements for the bar application, a breakdown of the subject matters on the exam, and advice on preparing for exam, namely through the utilizing IndyBar Review, the premiere bar review course for IN bar candidates.

So while there will always be questions about life and its many surprises, law students can take comfort that the IndyBar has taken the guess work out of and will continue to offer guidance on the ways of law school and the Indiana bar exam.•

  1. Well, maybe it's because they are unelected, and, they have a tendency to strike down laws by elected officials from all over the country. When you have been taught that "Democracy" is something almost sacred, then, you will have a tendency to frown on such imperious conduct. Lawyers get acculturated in law school into thinking that this is the very essence of high minded government, but to people who are more heavily than King George ever did, they may not like it. Thanks for the information.

  2. I pd for a bankruptcy years ago with Mr Stiles and just this week received a garnishment from my pay! He never filed it even though he told me he would! Don't let this guy practice law ever again!!!

  3. Excellent initiative on the part of the AG. Thankfully someone takes action against predators taking advantage of people who have already been through the wringer. Well done!

  4. Conour will never turn these funds over to his defrauded clients. He tearfully told the court, and his daughters dutifully pledged in interviews, that his first priority is to repay every dime of the money he stole from his clients. Judge Young bought it, much to the chagrin of Conour’s victims. Why would Conour need the $2,262 anyway? Taxpayers are now supporting him, paying for his housing, utilities, food, healthcare, and clothing. If Conour puts the money anywhere but in the restitution fund, he’s proved, once again, what a con artist he continues to be and that he has never had any intention of repaying his clients. Judge Young will be proven wrong... again; Conour has no remorse and the Judge is one of the many conned.

  5. Pass Legislation to require guilty defendants to pay for the costs of lab work, etc as part of court costs...
