Back to TopE-mailPrintBookmark and Share

As another school year begins, the halls of IU Law School-Indianapolis are once again filled with anxious and overwhelmed first year students. Right away the IBA Student Division offers practical programming, networking, and fun events to help students acclimate to their new setting.

Tips from Peers; a kickball tournament; as well as two “What You Need to Know” programs focusing on Law School as a whole and First Year Exams are all planned in the first semester. The IBA Student Division is dedicated to helping students transition and thrive in the Indianapolis legal community and these programs will do just that.

While some are nervous about the beginning of classes, others start thinking about the end. Though it is only August, the bar exam is around the corner. The IBA is aware of this and has solutions.

The lengthy bar application is always daunting, not to mention time consuming. The IBA Bar Application Clinic will take some of the frustration out of the process. No need to squeeze in time during the week to get your picture and fingerprints taken, the IBA has brought the vendors to you, as well as expert advice on application mistakes to avoid.

After the application is in, it is time to hit the books and the best choice for those taking the Indian Bar, is IndyBar Review. For over 50 years, IndyBar Review has been the premiere bar review course for Indiana students, offering LIVE lectures from Indiana experts, up-to-date outlines, practice exams on every subject area covered and former Indiana Board of Law Examiners among our faculty to give insight and grade practice exams.

The IBA is dedicated to helping students on their pathway to the profession and provides mentoring and education for each stop along the way.

  1. Don't we have bigger issues to concern ourselves with?

  2. Anyone who takes the time to study disciplinary and bar admission cases in Indiana ... much of which is, as a matter of course and by intent, off the record, would have a very difficult time drawing lines that did not take into account things which are not supposed to matter, such as affiliations, associations, associates and the like. Justice Hoosier style is a far departure than what issues in most other parts of North America. (More like Central America, in fact.) See, e.g., http://www.theindianalawyer.com/indiana-attorney-illegally-practicing-in-florida-suspended-for-18-months/PARAMS/article/42200 When while the Indiana court system end the cruel practice of killing prophets of due process and those advocating for blind justice?

  3. Wouldn't this call for an investigation of Government corruption? Chief Justice Loretta Rush, wrote that the case warranted the high court’s review because the method the Indiana Court of Appeals used to reach its decision was “a significant departure from the law.” Specifically, David wrote that the appellate panel ruled after reweighing of the evidence, which is NOT permissible at the appellate level. **But yet, they look the other way while an innocent child was taken by a loving mother who did nothing wrong"

  4. Different rules for different folks....

  5. I would strongly suggest anyone seeking mediation check the experience of the mediator. There are retired judges who decide to become mediators. Their training and experience is in making rulings which is not the point of mediation.
