IBA: Taking the Next Steps on Your Career Path

Back to TopE-mailPrintBookmark and Share

If you’re one of the many lawyers looking for a job or new direction, there are many resources available that can help you take the next steps along your career path.

One of the best things about a law degree is its versatility, and as you transition — or consider transitioning — to a new career — it’s important to remember the exceptional number of choices open to you.

You may want to explore going solo or you may want to set up a related business such as legal writing or research. You may want to do a lot of networking or you may want to use the Internet to find contract work while you determine what you want to do next.

For many lawyers, going solo is an option. There are many seminars and workshops offered on the subject. There is also a Sole/Small Firm Practice Section within the Indianapolis Bar to provide assistance for those considering these practice environments.

Indianapolis Bar Sole/Small Firm Practice Section Chair Kenan Farrell participated in a panel at last week’s Bench Bar addressing the need for a clear business plan when embarking on any career path, but most particularly a solo practice.

Jeff Meunier of the Indianapolis Bar’s Senior Counsel Division will be the featured speaker at an upcoming seminar, “So You Want to Hang Your Shingle”. Based upon a similar program offered last year, this CLE program will feature tips of interest to young lawyers seeking to launch their own practice independent of an established law firm. Registration is now open online at www.indybar.org.•

  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...
