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. CCHP's real accomplishment is the 2015 law signed by Gov Pence that basically outlaws any annexation that is forced where a 65% majority of landowners in the affected area disagree. Regardless of whether HP wins or loses, the citizens of Indiana will not have another fiasco like this. The law Gov Pence signed is a direct result of this malgovernance.

  2. I gave tempparry guardship to a friend of my granddaughter in 2012. I went to prison. I had custody. My daughter went to prison to. We are out. My daughter gave me custody but can get her back. She was not order to give me custody . but now we want granddaughter back from friend. She's 14 now. What rights do we have

  3. This sure is not what most who value good governance consider the Rule of Law to entail: "In a letter dated March 2, which Brizzi forwarded to IBJ, the commission dismissed the grievance “on grounds that there is not reasonable cause to believe that you are guilty of misconduct.”" Yet two month later reasonable cause does exist? (Or is the commission forging ahead, the need for reasonable belief be damned? -- A seeming violation of the Rules of Profession Ethics on the part of the commission) Could the rule of law theory cause one to believe that an explanation is in order? Could it be that Hoosier attorneys live under Imperial Law (which is also a t-word that rhymes with infamy) in which the Platonic guardians can do no wrong and never owe the plebeian class any explanation for their powerful actions. (Might makes it right?) Could this be a case of politics directing the commission, as celebrated IU Mauer Professor (the late) Patrick Baude warned was happening 20 years ago in his controversial (whisteblowing) ethics lecture on a quite similar topic: http://www.repository.law.indiana.edu/cgi/viewcontent.cgi?article=1498&context=ilj

  4. I have a case presently pending cert review before the SCOTUS that reveals just how Indiana regulates the bar. I have been denied licensure for life for holding the wrong views and questioning the grand inquisitors as to their duties as to state and federal constitutional due process.

  5. Here's an idea...how about we MORE heavily regulate the law schools to reduce the surplus of graduates, driving starting salaries up for those new grads, so that we can all pay our insane amount of student loans off in a reasonable amount of time and then be able to afford to do pro bono & low-fee work? I've got friends in other industries, radiology for example, and their schools accept a very limited number of students so there will never be a glut of new grads and everyone's pay stays high. For example, my radiologist friend's school accepted just six new students per year.
