Back to TopCommentsE-mailPrintBookmark and Share

Ready to become a leader in your profession and your community? Applications are now being accepted for the 2014-2015 Bar Leader Series, the IndyBar’s leadership development program for young attorneys. This fast-track series empowers participants to make the most of their innate talents, while emphasizing the importance of service to the community.

Through the Bar Leader Series, participants learn what it means to be a leader, gain insight vital to leaders in our community and learn how to communicate, motivate, inspire and succeed. In the past 11 years, more than 225 attorneys representing an array of practice areas, demographics and backgrounds have become Bar Leaders, going on to utilize the leadership skills and networking abilities gained from the program for the benefit of their profession, their community and their future.

The deadline to apply for Class XII is June 23, 2014. Full details on the program, including application instructions, can be found online at indybar.org/barleaderseries. Scholarships for the program are also available.

Committed to cultivating the next generation of leaders, the program was created in 2003 as the outgrowth of the IndyBar’s Task Force on Leadership Development. The program provides 25 IndyBar member attorneys in their third to tenth year of practice with an opportunity to meet other attorneys in an environment where they can grow both professionally and personally. This program and these students are key to keeping the bar’s leadership strong and maintaining the bar’s value to the legal community into the future.

The series will begin with an ice breaker reception in August and a retreat at Waycross Camp and Conference Center in Southern Indiana Sept. 11 and 12, 2014. The series continues with monthly presentations on a broad range of topics presented by local legal, political and business leaders, as well as the development and execution of community service team projects.•

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. 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!
