Your Credit Refresher

IndyBar educational programs offer an array of credit types:

• General Credits: Attorneys are required to attend at least six (6) hours of approved CLE per year and at least 36 hours of approved CLE per three-year cycle. Find more than 50 CLE programs open for registration at indybar.org/events.

• Ethics Credits: Attorneys are required to complete at least three (3) hours of approved ethics CLE at any point during each three-year compliance period. Search the IndyBar events calendar for Ethics credits at indybar.org/calendar.

• Non-Legal Subject Matter (NLS) Credits: The Commission approves courses for Non-Legal Subject Matter credit because, while they lack substantive legal content, they enhance an attendee’s proficiency in the attorney’s practice of law. Attorneys can report a maximum of 12 hours toward the three-year, 36-hour requirement using NLS courses.

• Distance Education: Distance Education is also known as online education. Attorneys can get six (6) hours per three-year period. Check out more than 100 programs in the IndyBar online CLE catalog at indybar.org/onlinecle.

• Continuing Mediation Education (CME) Credits: A registered mediator must complete a minimum of six (6) hours of Commission-approved continuing mediation education anytime during a three-year educational period. Looking for CME credits? Search the IndyBar events calendar for courses offering CME credit at indybar.org/calendar.

• Applied Professionalism Credit: The Commission has determined that all newly admitted lawyers must take a Commission- accredited six-hour applied professionalism course in their first three-year educational period. Mark your calendars for IndyBar’s next Applied Professionalism Course on Oct. 30 and register online at indybar.org/events.

  1. "Am I bugging you? I don't mean to bug ya." If what I wrote below is too much social philosophy for Indiana attorneys, just take ten this vacay to watch The Lego Movie with kiddies and sing along where appropriate: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=etzMjoH0rJw

  2. I've got some free speech to share here about who is at work via the cat's paw of the ACLU stamping out Christian observances.... 2 Thessalonians chap 2: "And we also thank God continually because, when you received the word of God, which you heard from us, you accepted it not as a human word, but as it actually is, the word of God, which is indeed at work in you who believe. For you, brothers and sisters, became imitators of God’s churches in Judea, which are in Christ Jesus: You suffered from your own people the same things those churches suffered from the Jews who killed the Lord Jesus and the prophets and also drove us out. They displease God and are hostile to everyone in their effort to keep us from speaking to the Gentiles so that they may be saved. In this way they always heap up their sins to the limit. The wrath of God has come upon them at last."

  3. Did someone not tell people who have access to the Chevy Volts that it has a gas engine and will run just like a normal car? The batteries give the Volt approximately a 40 mile range, but after that the gas engine will propel the vehicle either directly through the transmission like any other car, or gas engine recharges the batteries depending on the conditions.

  4. Catholic, Lutheran, even the Baptists nuzzling the wolf! http://www.judicialwatch.org/press-room/press-releases/judicial-watch-documents-reveal-obama-hhs-paid-baptist-children-family-services-182129786-four-months-housing-illegal-alien-children/ YET where is the Progressivist outcry? Silent. I wonder why?

  5. Thank you, Honorable Ladies, and thank you, TIL, for this interesting interview. The most interesting question was the last one, which drew the least response. Could it be that NFP stamps are a threat to the very foundation of our common law American legal tradition, a throwback to the continental system that facilitated differing standards of justice? A throwback to Star Chamber’s protection of the landed gentry? If TIL ever again interviews this same panel, I would recommend inviting one known for voicing socio-legal dissent for the masses, maybe Welch, maybe Ogden, maybe our own John Smith? As demographics shift and our social cohesion precipitously drops, a consistent judicial core will become more and more important so that Justice and Equal Protection and Due Process are yet guiding stars. If those stars fall from our collective social horizon (and can they be seen even now through the haze of NFP opinions?) then what glue other than more NFP decisions and TRO’s and executive orders -- all backed by more and more lethally armed praetorians – will prop up our government institutions? And if and when we do arrive at such an end … will any then dare call that tyranny? Or will the cost of such dissent be too high to justify?
