EidtPerspLucas-sigWhen you are part of a media staff, it seems that you are constantly trying to get into the head of the reader. What will draw you in and keep you coming back for more?

One thing we know for sure is that lawyers like reading about other lawyers. Most of our data on this is anecdotal – conversations with subscribers often reveal that our Supreme Court disciplinary action report, followed closely by On the Move and other features about the people in the profession, are one of the first things many turn to when receiving their new Indiana Lawyer. Reader surveys have confirmed the popularity of “people” news among our readers.

As electronic delivery of news continues to increase in popularity, we continue to look for the best ways to deliver the news you want in the way you want it. In February, Indiana Lawyer will launch a new email we are calling “Lawyers on the Move.”

This email, which will be sent biweekly to all IL daily email subscribers, will feature partnership announcements, associate hires, lateral moves, awards and honors, elections and promotions, and other professional news from Indiana’s legal community. It will include lawyer profiles, columns and stories that acquaint you with people throughout the state and provide information you can use in the practice of law.

If you are already receiving our daily email, you need to do nothing more. Our “In This Issue” email is delivered on the Wednesday that a new issue of Indiana Lawyer is published, and Lawyers on the Move will be delivered to your inbox on Wednesdays that fall between publication dates. Like the IL daily and In This Issue, Lawyers on the Move is a free email service.

If you are not on our email list, you can sign up today. Visit www.theindianalawyer.com and scroll down to the “Indiana Lawyer Newsletters – Sign Up Now!” box on the right side of the homepage. Check the appropriate boxes and enter your name and email address. It is as simple as that.

While signing up for Lawyers on the Move, I encourage you to try other Indiana Lawyer email products. (Did I mention that subscribing is free?) Reader surveys reveal that 98 percent of IL daily email subscribers consider this email their primary source or one of their most important sources of legal news.

The staff of Indiana Lawyer is excited about the opportunity to bring you another means of staying in-the-know and maintaining connections with lawyers throughout the state. As always, your suggestions and feedback are encouraged and appreciated. Contact me at 317-472-5233 or klucas@ibj.com.•

  1. I grew up on a farm and live in the county and it's interesting that the big industrial farmers like Jeff Shoaf don't live next to their industrial operations...

  2. So that none are misinformed by my posting wihtout a non de plume here, please allow me to state that I am NOT an Indiana licensed attorney, although I am an Indiana resident approved to practice law and represent clients in Indiana's fed court of Nth Dist and before the 7th circuit. I remain licensed in KS, since 1996, no discipline. This must be clarified since the IN court records will reveal that I did sit for and pass the Indiana bar last February. Yet be not confused by the fact that I was so allowed to be tested .... I am not, to be clear in the service of my duty to be absolutely candid about this, I AM NOT a member of the Indiana bar, and might never be so licensed given my unrepented from errors of thought documented in this opinion, at fn2, which likely supports Mr Smith's initial post in this thread: http://caselaw.findlaw.com/us-7th-circuit/1592921.html

  3. When I served the State of Kansas as Deputy AG over Consumer Protection & Antitrust for four years, supervising 20 special agents and assistant attorneys general (back before the IBLE denied me the right to practice law in Indiana for not having the right stuff and pretty much crushed my legal career) we had a saying around the office: Resist the lure of the ring!!! It was a take off on Tolkiem, the idea that absolute power (I signed investigative subpoenas as a judge would in many other contexts, no need to show probable cause)could corrupt absolutely. We feared that we would overreach constitutional limits if not reminded, over and over, to be mindful to not do so. Our approach in so challenging one another was Madisonian, as the following quotes from the Father of our Constitution reveal: The essence of Government is power; and power, lodged as it must be in human hands, will ever be liable to abuse. We are right to take alarm at the first experiment upon our liberties. I believe there are more instances of the abridgement of freedom of the people by gradual and silent encroachments by those in power than by violent and sudden usurpations. Liberty may be endangered by the abuse of liberty, but also by the abuse of power. All men having power ought to be mistrusted. -- James Madison, Federalist Papers and other sources: http://www.constitution.org/jm/jm_quotes.htm RESIST THE LURE OF THE RING ALL YE WITH POLITICAL OR JUDICIAL POWER!

  4. My dear Mr Smith, I respect your opinions and much enjoy your posts here. We do differ on our view of the benefits and viability of the American Experiment in Ordered Liberty. While I do agree that it could be better, and that your points in criticism are well taken, Utopia does indeed mean nowhere. I think Madison, Jefferson, Adams and company got it about as good as it gets in a fallen post-Enlightenment social order. That said, a constitution only protects the citizens if it is followed. We currently have a bevy of public officials and judicial agents who believe that their subjectivism, their personal ideology, their elitist fears and concerns and cause celebs trump the constitutions of our forefathers. This is most troubling. More to follow in the next post on that subject.

  5. Yep I am not Bryan Brown. Bryan you appear to be a bigger believer in the Constitution than I am. Were I still a big believer then I might be using my real name like you. Personally, I am no longer a fan of secularism. I favor the confessional state. In religious mattes, it seems to me that social diversity is chaos and conflict, while uniformity is order and peace.... secularism has been imposed by America on other nations now by force and that has not exactly worked out very well.... I think the American historical experiment with disestablishmentarianism is withering on the vine before our eyes..... Since I do not know if that is OK for an officially licensed lawyer to say, I keep the nom de plume.
