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.•

  1. Excellent initiative on the part of the AG. Thankfully someone takes action against predators taking advantage of people who have already been through the wringer. Well done!

  2. Conour will never turn these funds over to his defrauded clients. He tearfully told the court, and his daughters dutifully pledged in interviews, that his first priority is to repay every dime of the money he stole from his clients. Judge Young bought it, much to the chagrin of Conour’s victims. Why would Conour need the $2,262 anyway? Taxpayers are now supporting him, paying for his housing, utilities, food, healthcare, and clothing. If Conour puts the money anywhere but in the restitution fund, he’s proved, once again, what a con artist he continues to be and that he has never had any intention of repaying his clients. Judge Young will be proven wrong... again; Conour has no remorse and the Judge is one of the many conned.

  3. Pass Legislation to require guilty defendants to pay for the costs of lab work, etc as part of court costs...

  4. 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.

  5. 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).
