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. It was mentioned in the article that there have been numerous CLE events to train attorneys on e-filing. I would like someone to provide a list of those events, because I have not seen any such events in east central Indiana, and since Hamilton County is one of the counties where e-filing is mandatory, one would expect some instruction in this area. Come on, people, give some instruction, not just applause!

  2. This law is troubling in two respects: First, why wasn't the law reviewed "with the intention of getting all the facts surrounding the legislation and its actual impact on the marketplace" BEFORE it was passed and signed? Seems a bit backwards to me (even acknowledging that this is the Indiana state legislature we're talking about. Second, what is it with the laws in this state that seem to create artificial monopolies in various industries? Besides this one, the other law that comes to mind is the legislation that governed the granting of licenses to firms that wanted to set up craft distilleries. The licensing was limited to only those entities that were already in the craft beer brewing business. Republicans in this state talk a big game when it comes to being "business friendly". They're friendly alright . . . to certain businesses.

  3. Gretchen, Asia, Roberto, Tonia, Shannon, Cheri, Nicholas, Sondra, Carey, Laura ... my heart breaks for you, reaching out in a forum in which you are ignored by a professional suffering through both compassion fatigue and the love of filthy lucre. Most if not all of you seek a warm blooded Hoosier attorney unafraid to take on the government and plead that government officials have acted unconstitutionally to try to save a family and/or rescue children in need and/or press individual rights against the Leviathan state. I know an attorney from Kansas who has taken such cases across the country, arguing before half of the federal courts of appeal and presenting cases to the US S.Ct. numerous times seeking cert. Unfortunately, due to his zeal for the constitutional rights of peasants and willingness to confront powerful government bureaucrats seemingly violating the same ... he was denied character and fitness certification to join the Indiana bar, even after he was cleared to sit for, and passed, both the bar exam and ethics exam. And was even admitted to the Indiana federal bar! NOW KNOW THIS .... you will face headwinds and difficulties in locating a zealously motivated Hoosier attorney to face off against powerful government agents who violate the constitution, for those who do so tend to end up as marginalized as Paul Odgen, who was driven from the profession. So beware, many are mere expensive lapdogs, the kind of breed who will gladly take a large retainer, but then fail to press against the status quo and powers that be when told to heel to. It is a common belief among some in Indiana that those attorneys who truly fight the power and rigorously confront corruption often end up, actually or metaphorically, in real life or at least as to their careers, as dead as the late, great Gary Welch. All of that said, I wish you the very best in finding a Hoosier attorney with a fighting spirit to press your rights as far as you can, for you do have rights against government actors, no matter what said actors may tell you otherwise. Attorneys outside the elitist camp are often better fighters that those owing the powers that be for their salaries, corner offices and end of year bonuses. So do not be afraid to retain a green horn or unconnected lawyer, many of them are fine men and woman who are yet untainted by the "unique" Hoosier system.

  4. I am not the John below. He is a journalist and talk show host who knows me through my years working in Kansas government. I did no ask John to post the note below ...

  5. "...not those committed in the heat of an argument." If I ever see a man physically abusing a woman or a child and I'm close enough to intercede I will not ask him why he is abusing her/him. I will give him a split second to cease his attack and put his hands in the air while I call the police. If he continues, I will still call the police but to report, "Man down with a gunshot wound,"instead.
