Back to TopE-mailPrintBookmark and Share

Indiana’s Judges and Lawyers Assistance Program is partnering with the American Bar Association Commission on Lawyer Assistance Programs to host this year’s national conference in October in Indianapolis.

The conference focuses on wellness, addictions, and mental-health issues. This year’s theme is “Lawyers Helping Lawyers since 1988.” Experts will present information on topics such as addiction and recovery; the aging of the profession; stress and compassion fatigue; and how to reach out to judges, lawyers, and law students. Speakers include Dr. Will Miller, a therapist, motivational speaker, and professor of communications at Purdue University.

The 23rd annual conference is at the Hyatt Regency in downtown Indianapolis Oct. 5-8. More information can be found online on the ABA’s website. Judicial officers who want to attend the conference on a scholarship from the Indiana Supreme Court can download an online application.

  1. Don't we have bigger issues to concern ourselves with?

  2. Anyone who takes the time to study disciplinary and bar admission cases in Indiana ... much of which is, as a matter of course and by intent, off the record, would have a very difficult time drawing lines that did not take into account things which are not supposed to matter, such as affiliations, associations, associates and the like. Justice Hoosier style is a far departure than what issues in most other parts of North America. (More like Central America, in fact.) See, e.g., http://www.theindianalawyer.com/indiana-attorney-illegally-practicing-in-florida-suspended-for-18-months/PARAMS/article/42200 When while the Indiana court system end the cruel practice of killing prophets of due process and those advocating for blind justice?

  3. Wouldn't this call for an investigation of Government corruption? Chief Justice Loretta Rush, wrote that the case warranted the high court’s review because the method the Indiana Court of Appeals used to reach its decision was “a significant departure from the law.” Specifically, David wrote that the appellate panel ruled after reweighing of the evidence, which is NOT permissible at the appellate level. **But yet, they look the other way while an innocent child was taken by a loving mother who did nothing wrong"

  4. Different rules for different folks....

  5. I would strongly suggest anyone seeking mediation check the experience of the mediator. There are retired judges who decide to become mediators. Their training and experience is in making rulings which is not the point of mediation.
