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 fee increase would be livable except for the 11% increase in spending at the Disciplinary Commission. The Commission should be focused on true public harm rather than going on witch hunts against lawyers who dare to criticize judges.

  2. Marijuana is safer than alcohol. AT the time the 1937 Marijuana Tax Act was enacted all major pharmaceutical companies in the US sold marijuana products. 11 Presidents of the US have smoked marijuana. Smoking it does not increase the likelihood that you will get lung cancer. There are numerous reports of canabis oil killing many kinds of incurable cancer. (See Rick Simpson's Oil on the internet or facebook).

  3. The US has 5% of the world's population and 25% of the world's prisoners. Far too many people are sentenced for far too many years in prison. Many of the federal prisoners are sentenced for marijuana violations. Marijuana is safer than alcohol.

  4. My daughter was married less than a week and her new hubbys picture was on tv for drugs and now I havent't seen my granddaughters since st patricks day. when my daughter left her marriage from her childrens Father she lived with me with my grand daughters and that was ok but I called her on the new hubby who is in jail and said didn't want this around my grandkids not unreasonable request and I get shut out for her mistake

  5. From the perspective of a practicing attorney, it sounds like this masters degree in law for non-attorneys will be useless to anyone who gets it. "However, Ted Waggoner, chair of the ISBA’s Legal Education Conclave, sees the potential for the degree program to actually help attorneys do their jobs better. He pointed to his practice at Peterson Waggoner & Perkins LLP in Rochester and how some clients ask their attorneys to do work, such as filling out insurance forms, that they could do themselves. Waggoner believes the individuals with the legal master’s degrees could do the routine, mundane business thus freeing the lawyers to do the substantive legal work." That is simply insulting to suggest that someone with a masters degree would work in a role that is subpar to even an administrative assistant. Even someone with just a certificate or associate's degree in paralegal studies would be overqualified to sit around helping clients fill out forms. Anyone who has a business background that they think would be enhanced by having a legal background will just go to law school, or get an MBA (which typically includes a business law class that gives a generic, broad overview of legal concepts). No business-savvy person would ever seriously consider this ridiculous master of law for non-lawyers degree. It reeks of desperation. The only people I see getting it are the ones who did not get into law school, who see the degree as something to add to their transcript in hopes of getting into a JD program down the road.
