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. Being dedicated to a genre keeps it alive until the masses catch up to the "trend." Kent and Bill are keepin' it LIVE!! Thank you gentlemen..you know your JAZZ.

  2. Hemp has very little THC which is needed to kill cancer cells! Growing cannabis plants for THC inside a hemp field will not work...where is the fear? From not really knowing about Cannabis and Hemp or just not listening to the people teaching you through testimonies and packets of info over the last few years! Wake up Hoosier law makers!

  3. If our State Government would sue for their rights to grow HEMP like Kentucky did we would not have these issues. AND for your INFORMATION many medical items are also made from HEMP. FOOD, FUEL,FIBER,TEXTILES and MEDICINE are all uses for this plant. South Bend was built on Hemp. Our states antiquated fear of cannabis is embarrassing on the world stage. We really need to lead the way rather than follow. Some day.. we will have freedom in Indiana. And I for one will continue to educate the good folks of this state to the beauty and wonder of this magnificent plant.

  4. Put aside all the marijuana concerns, we are talking about food and fiber uses here. The federal impediments to hemp cultivation are totally ridiculous. Preposterous. Biggest hemp cultivators are China and Europe. We get most of ours from Canada. Hemp is as versatile as any crop ever including corn and soy. It's good the governor laid the way for this, regrettable the buffoons in DC stand in the way. A statutory relic of the failed "war on drugs"

  5. Cannabis is GOOD for our PEOPLE and GOOD for our STATE... 78% would like to see legal access to the product line for better Hoosier Heath. There is a 25% drop in PAIN KILLER Overdoses in states where CANNABIS is legal.
