Indiana Tech plans dedication ceremony for law school

Indiana Tech Law School will host a dedication ceremony and investiture of founding dean Peter Alexander on Sept. 14 at the Schaefer Center gymnasium on the school’s Fort Wayne campus.

Scheduled to speak at the event are Greg Zoeller, Indiana attorney general; Frank Easterbrook, chief judge of the U.S. 7th Circuit Court of Appeals; and Katherine Broderick, dean of the David A. Clarke School of Law at the University of the District of Columbia.

“We are very pleased that three distinguished members of the legal community will share the day with us,” Indiana Tech President Arthur Snyder stated in a press release.

The ceremony begins at 10 a.m. and is open to the public.

Indiana Tech Law School started classes Aug. 26.

Faculty talks will spotlightbooks by IU McKinney authors

The Indiana University Robert H. McKinney School of Law will be hosting Faculty Book Talks during September to highlight the scholarship of the school’s professors. Each discussion will begin at 5 p.m. in the Wynne Courtroom with a reception to follow in the atrium, both in Inlow Hall, 530 W. New York St., Indianapolis.

Yvonne Dutton, associate professor of law, will present her book, “Rules, Politics, and the International Criminal Court: Committing to the Court,” Sept. 12. In her book, she examines the International Criminal Court, its ability to realize treaty goals and how its enforcement mechanism influences state membership.

David Orentlicher, professor of law, will discuss his book, “Two Presidents are Better than One: the Case of a Bipartisan Executive Branch,” Sept. 19. Orentlicher argues the concerns over the growing presidential abuse of power and how the toxic political atmosphere can be fixed by replacing the one person, one-party presidency with a two-person, two-party executive branch.

Each event is worth one hour of continuing legal education credit. For more information, visit www.mckinneylaw.iu.edu and click on the events listing.

  1. I will continue to pray that God keeps giving you the strength and courage to keep fighting for what is right and just so you are aware, you are an inspiration to those that are feeling weak and helpless as they are trying to figure out why evil keeps winning. God Bless.....

  2. Some are above the law in Indiana. Some lined up with Lodges have controlled power in the state since the 1920s when the Klan ruled Indiana. Consider the comments at this post and note the international h.q. in Indianapolis. http://www.theindianalawyer.com/human-trafficking-rising-in-indiana/PARAMS/article/42468. Brave journalists need to take this child torturing, above the law and antimarriage cult on just like The Globe courageously took on Cardinal Law. Are there any brave Hoosier journalists?

  3. I am nearing 66 years old..... I have no interest in contacting anyone. All I need to have is a nationality....a REAL Birthday...... the place U was born...... my soul will never be at peace. I have lived my life without identity.... if anyone can help me please contact me.

  4. This is the dissent discussed in the comment below. See comments on that story for an amazing discussion of likely judicial corruption of some kind, the rejection of the rule of law at the very least. http://www.theindianalawyer.com/justices-deny-transfer-to-child-custody-case/PARAMS/article/42774#comment

  5. That means much to me, thank you. My own communion, to which I came in my 30's from a protestant evangelical background, refuses to so affirm me, the Bishop's courtiers all saying, when it matters, that they defer to the state, and trust that the state would not be wrong as to me. (LIttle did I know that is the most common modernist catholic position on the state -- at least when the state acts consistent with the philosophy of the democrat party). I asked my RCC pastor to stand with me before the Examiners after they demanded that I disavow God's law on the record .... he refused, saying the Bishop would not allow it. I filed all of my file in the open in federal court so the Bishop's men could see what had been done ... they refused to look. (But the 7th Cir and federal judge Theresa Springmann gave me the honor of admission after so reading, even though ISC had denied me, rendering me a very rare bird). Such affirmation from a fellow believer as you have done here has been rare for me, and that dearth of solidarity, and the economic pain visited upon my wife and five children, have been the hardest part of the struggle. They did indeed banish me, for life, and so, in substance did the the Diocese, which treated me like a pariah, but thanks to this ezine ... and this is simply amazing to me .... because of this ezine I am not silenced. This ezine allowing us to speak to the corruption that the former chief "justice" left behind, yet embedded in his systems when he retired ... the openness to discuss that corruption (like that revealed in the recent whistleblowing dissent by courageous Justice David and fresh breath of air Chief Justice Rush,) is a great example of the First Amendment at work. I will not be silenced as long as this tree falling in the wood can be heard. The Hoosier Judiciary has deep seated problems, generational corruption, ideological corruption. Many cases demonstrate this. It must be spotlighted. The corrupted system has no hold on me now, none. I have survived their best shots. It is now my time to not be silent. To the Glory of God, and for the good of man's law. (It almost always works that way as to the true law, as I explained the bar examiners -- who refused to follow even their own statutory law and violated core organic law when banishing me for life -- actually revealing themselves to be lawless.)
