IndyBar: Headliners to take the podium at IndyBar Applied Professionalism Course

Back to TopCommentsE-mailPrintBookmark and Share

No more final exams. The Indiana Bar Exam is a fuzzy memory. The final piece of the puzzle will come in a required Applied Professionalism Course offered by the Indianapolis Bar Association on Thursday, April 24.

Newly minted attorneys are required to take this course on professionalism and civility within their first three years of practice. The IndyBar’s Young Lawyers Division has assembled a stellar group of presenters who will make the day-long program both engaging and interactive, with breakout sessions catering to both large- and small-firm practitioners.

Registration is available now at indybar.org/events for the April session. Space fills up quickly. The course can also be taken for six hours of ethics credit instead of the APC credit.

The sessions will be held at the IndyBar Education Center from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. The cost is $75 for IndyBar Members and $150 for Non-Members.

Distinguished speakers piloting the sessions will include: Hon. Tim A. Baker, U.S. District Court, Southern District of Indiana; and Hon. Denise K. LaRue, U.S. District Court, Southern District of Indiana, will lead a discussion on professionalism and civility in a sometimes-uncivil world.

Alan A. Bouwkamp, Newton Becker Bouwkamp Pendoski PC; Margaret M. Christensen, Bingham Greenebaum Doll LLP and M. Kent Newton, Newton Becker Bouwkamp Pendoski PC, will speak on the Top 10 Reasons You Meet the Disciplinary Commission.

Chuck P. Schmal, Woodard Emhardt Moriarty McNett & Henry LLP and Brian K. Zoeller, Cohen & Malad LLP, will speak on the role that support staff plays in the success of an attorney’s career.

“If I Knew Then What I Know Now” will feature a panel discussion to include Kevin P. McGoff, Bingham Greenebaum Doll LLP and Marci A. Reddick, Taft Stettinius & Hollister LLP.

A. Scott Chinn, Faegre Baker Daniels LLP and Amanda L. Shelby, Faegre Baker Daniels LLP, will share tips on how to survive in a large firm while Commissioner Jason G. Reyome, Marion Superior Court and Patrick J. Olmstead Jr., Patrick Olmstead Law LLC will tackle the small firm angle.

Presentations on trust accounts and IOLTA and on the Judges’ & Lawyers’ Assistance Program also will be part of the agenda.

Attorneys in their first three-year educational period must take a six-hour Applied Professionalism Course, according to Admission and Discipline Rule 29 and the Indiana Commission for Continuing Legal Education. Participants must attend this course in its entirety to receive Applied Professionalism Course credit.•

  1. "...not those committed in the heat of an argument." If I ever see a man physically abusing a woman or a child and I'm close enough to intercede I will not ask him why he is abusing her/him. I will give him a split second to cease his attack and put his hands in the air while I call the police. If he continues, I will still call the police but to report, "Man down with a gunshot wound,"instead.

  2. And so the therapeutic state is weaonized. How soon until those with ideologies opposing the elite are disarmed in the name of mental health? If it can start anywhere it can start in the hoosiers' slavishly politically correct capital city.

  3. So this firebrand GOP Gov was set free by a "unanimous Supreme Court" , a court which is divided, even bitterly, on every culture war issue. WHAT A RESOUNDING SLAP in the Virginia Court's face! How bad must it have been. And all the journalists, lap dogs of the status quo they are, can do is howl that others cannot be railroaded like McDonald now??? Cannot reflect upon the ruining of Winston and Julia's life and love? (Oh I forget, the fiction at this Ministry of Truth is that courts can never err, and when they do, and do greatly, as here, why then it must be ignored, since it does not compute.)

  4. My daughter is a addict and my grandson was taken by DCS and while in hospital for overdose my daughter was told to sign papers from DCS giving up her parental rights of my grandson to the biological father's mom and step-dad. These people are not the best to care for him and I was never called or even given the chance to take him, but my daughter had given me guardianship but we never went to court to finalize the papers. Please I have lost my daughter and I dont want to lose my grandson as well. I hope and look forward to speaking with you God Bless and Thank You for all of your help

  5. To Bob- Goooooood, I'm glad you feel that way! He's alive and happy and thriving and out and I'm his woman and we live in West Palm Beach Florida, where his parents have a sprawling estate on an exclusive golf course......scum bag
