We’re Seeking Innovators!

Interested in the idea of innovation in the practice of law and becoming more involved in the Indianapolis legal community? The IndyBar’s Innovation and Research Council is looking for additional creative minds to join the team. The purpose of the council is to discuss trends and identify ideas and opportunities while answering the question - “Where within the practice of law do gaps exist that the IndyBar could assist by providing or creating a solution(s) to enhance productivity and profitability?”

The council meets twice a year for brainstorming (approximately two hours each meeting) and council members are encouraged to participate in the development of ideas generated by the group. Maximum volunteer time is expected to be 20 hours annually. Contact IndyBar Executive Director Julie Armstrong at to express your interest.

Patent Bar Scholarship Available

The Indianapolis Bar Association Intellectual Property Section is pleased to announce the availability of scholarships to encourage law students who are eligible for the Patent Bar Exam to complete the exam during the summer after their first year. Achieving this goal will enable the students to concentrate on the critical second-summer clerkship and make them more attractive to prospective employers after graduation.

The section will reimburse Patent Bar Exam fees for student members of the IndyBar Intellectual Property Section. Applications are due by May 1 and the scholarship recipients will be announced on May 12. Additional details and requirements can be found at

  1. It's an appreciable step taken by the government to curb the child abuse that are happening in the schools. Employees in the schools those are selected without background check can not be trusted. A thorough background check on the teachers or any other other new employees must be performed to choose the best and quality people. Those who are already employed in the past should also be checked for best precaution. The future of kids can be saved through this simple process. However, the checking process should be conducted by the help of a trusted background checking agency(

  4. My parents took advantage of the fact that I was homeless in 2012 and went to court and got Legal Guardianship I my 2 daughters. I am finally back on my feet and want them back, but now they want to fight me on it. I want to raise my children and have them almost all the time on the weekends. Mynparents are both almost 70 years old and they play favorites which bothers me a lot. Do I have a leg to stand on if I go to court to terminate lehal guardianship? My kids want to live with me and I want to raise them, this was supposed to be temporary, and now it is turning into a fight. Ridiculous

  5. Here's my two cents. While in Texas in 2007 I was not registered because I only had to do it for ten years. So imagine my surprise as I find myself forced to register in Texas because indiana can't get their head out of their butt long enough to realize they passed an ex post facto law in 2006. So because Indiana had me listed as a failure to register Texas said I had to do it there. Now if Indiana had done right by me all along I wouldn't need the aclu to defend my rights. But such is life.
