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. The practitioners and judges who hail E-filing as the Saviour of the West need to contain their respective excitements. E-filing is federal court requires the practitioner to cram his motion practice into pigeonholes created by IT people. Compound motions or those seeking alternative relief are effectively barred, unless the practitioner wants to receive a tart note from some functionary admonishing about the "problem". E-filing is just another method by which courts and judges transfer their burden to practitioners, who are the really the only powerless components of the system. Of COURSE it is easier for the court to require all of its imput to conform to certain formats, but this imposition does NOT improve the quality of the practice of law and does NOT improve the ability of the practitioner to advocate for his client or to fashion pleadings that exactly conform to his client's best interests. And we should be very wary of the disingenuous pablum about the costs. The courts will find a way to stick it to the practitioner. Lake County is a VERY good example of this rapaciousness. Any one who does not believe this is invited to review the various special fees that system imposes upon practitioners- as practitioners- and upon each case ON TOP of the court costs normal in every case manually filed. Jurisprudence according to Aldous Huxley.

  2. Any attorneys who practice in federal court should be able to say the same as I can ... efiling is great. I have been doing it in fed court since it started way back. Pacer has its drawbacks, but the ability to hit an e-docket and pull up anything and everything onscreen is a huge plus for a litigator, eps the sole practitioner, who lacks a filing clerk and the paralegal support of large firms. Were I an Indiana attorney I would welcome this great step forward.

  3. Can we get full disclosure on lobbyist's payments to legislatures such as Mr Buck? AS long as there are idiots that are disrespectful of neighbors and intent on shooting fireworks every night, some kind of regulations are needed.

  4. I am the mother of the child in this case. My silence on the matter was due to the fact that I filed, both in Illinois and Indiana, child support cases. I even filed supporting documentation with the Indiana family law court. Not sure whether this information was provided to the court of appeals or not. Wish the case was done before moving to Indiana, because no matter what, there is NO WAY the state of Illinois would have allowed an appeal on a child support case!
