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. The ADA acts as a tax upon all for the benefit of a few. And, most importantly, the many have no individual say in whether they pay the tax. Those with handicaps suffered in military service should get a pass, but those who are handicapped by accident or birth do NOT deserve that pass. The drivel about "equal access" is spurious because the handicapped HAVE equal access, they just can't effectively use it. That is their problem, not society's. The burden to remediate should be that of those who seek the benefit of some social, constructional, or dimensional change, NOT society generally. Everybody wants to socialize the costs and concentrate the benefits of government intrusion so that they benefit and largely avoid the costs. This simply maintains the constant push to the slop trough, and explains, in part, why the nation is 20 trillion dollars in the hole.

  2. Hey 2 psychs is never enough, since it is statistically unlikely that three will ever agree on anything! New study admits this pseudo science is about as scientifically valid as astrology ... done by via fortune cookie ....John Ioannidis, professor of health research and policy at Stanford University, said the study was impressive and that its results had been eagerly awaited by the scientific community. “Sadly, the picture it paints - a 64% failure rate even among papers published in the best journals in the field - is not very nice about the current status of psychological science in general, and for fields like social psychology it is just devastating,” he said. http://www.theguardian.com/science/2015/aug/27/study-delivers-bleak-verdict-on-validity-of-psychology-experiment-results

  3. Indianapolis Bar Association President John Trimble and I are on the same page, but it is a very large page with plenty of room for others to join us. As my final Res Gestae article will express in more detail in a few days, the Great Recession hastened a fundamental and permanent sea change for the global legal service profession. Every state bar is facing the same existential questions that thrust the medical profession into national healthcare reform debates. The bench, bar, and law schools must comprehensively reconsider how we define the practice of law and what it means to access justice. If the three principals of the legal service profession do not recast the vision of their roles and responsibilities soon, the marketplace will dictate those roles and responsibilities without regard for the public interests that the legal profession professes to serve.

  4. I have met some highly placed bureaucrats who vehemently disagree, Mr. Smith. This is not your father's time in America. Some ideas are just too politically incorrect too allow spoken, says those who watch over us for the good of their concept of order.

  5. Lets talk about this without forgetting that Lawyers, too, have FREEDOM OF SPEECH AND ASSOCIATION
