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. File under the Sociology of Hoosier Discipline ... “We will be answering the complaint in due course and defending against the commission’s allegations,” said Indianapolis attorney Don Lundberg, who’s representing Hudson in her disciplinary case. FOR THOSE WHO DO NOT KNOW ... Lundberg ran the statist attorney disciplinary machinery in Indy for decades, and is now the "go to guy" for those who can afford him .... the ultimate insider for the well-to-do and/or connected who find themselves in the crosshairs. It would appear that this former prosecutor knows how the game is played in Circle City ... and is sacrificing accordingly. See more on that here ... http://www.theindianalawyer.com/supreme-court-reprimands-attorney-for-falsifying-hours-worked/PARAMS/article/43757 Legal sociologists could have a field day here ... I wonder why such things are never studied? Is a sacrifice to the well connected former regulators a de facto bribe? Such questions, if probed, could bring about a more just world, a more equal playing field, less Stalinist governance. All of the things that our preambles tell us to value could be advanced if only sunshine reached into such dark worlds. As a great jurist once wrote: "Publicity is justly commended as a remedy for social and industrial diseases. Sunlight is said to be the best of disinfectants; electric light the most efficient policeman." Other People's Money—and How Bankers Use It (1914). Ah, but I am certifiable, according to the Indiana authorities, according to the ISC it can be read, for believing such trite things and for advancing such unwanted thoughts. As a great albeit fictional and broken resistance leaders once wrote: "I am the dead." Winston Smith Let us all be dead to the idea of maintaining a patently unjust legal order.

  2. The Department of Education still has over $100 million of ITT Education Services money in the form of $100+ million Letters of Credit. That money was supposed to be used by The DOE to help students. The DOE did nothing to help students. The DOE essentially stole the money from ITT Tech and still has the money. The trustee should be going after the DOE to get the money back for people who are owed that money, including shareholders.

  3. Do you know who the sponsor of the last-minute amendment was?

  4. Law firms of over 50 don't deliver good value, thats what this survey really tells you. Anybody that has seen what they bill for compared to what they deliver knows that already, however.

  5. As one of the many consumers affected by this breach, I found my bank data had been lifted and used to buy over $200 of various merchandise in New York. I did a pretty good job of tracing the purchases to stores around a college campus just from the info on my bank statement. Hm. Mr. Hill, I would like my $200 back! It doesn't belong to the state, in my opinion. Give it back to the consumers affected. I had to freeze my credit and take out data protection, order a new debit card and wait until it arrived. I deserve something for my trouble!
