Editorial: IndyBar - Your Source for Information

By Julie Armstrong, Executive Director

Back in the day, even before I joined the IndyBar staff, there was a singular method for communicating with our members. Known as the Bulletin, it was a printed elongated postcard readily identified for its unique size and concise information. It was the most recognizable and convenient way to know what was going on at the Bar.

Over time growth in IndyBar programs and services and the development of new technology made it beneficial to utilize a variety of other communication tools. Some of those resources include: The Indiana Lawyer, www.indybar.org, print brochures, Facebook, and Twitter. The focus of each of these new tools is essentially the same as the old Bulletin – what’s happening at the IndyBar. Today we’re adding yet another tool for providing information by launching the IndyBar blog at www.indybar.org.

For those unfamiliar with blogs they’re essentially an online diary of thoughts and information for open sharing with those taking the time to read to the blog. The IndyBar’s blog is intended to share news of new laws, post articles of common interest, and comment on information unique to our legal community. Don’t want to have the headache of remembering to check the blog? No problem. Follow Indybar on Twitter. The daily blog posting will be tweeted so you can determine at a glance if there’s information of interest.

Consider our blog as a quick, yet useful glance in your day. Rarely will the posting extend beyond two paragraphs. If you find yourself still reading it will be because you found the links we may provide to be useful.

You’re also encouraged to provide information for the blog. Your help in suggesting blogs for linking to our own is also appreciated. The more information provided the better.

What we don’t want to do with the blog is become narrow in our focus, political in our nature or stale in our content. It’s a diary of ideas and information which we hope will promote thought and additional personal research.

Schedule a moment to check out the blog. It won’t hurt, and it might help. Who knows, you might even find your name in a posting.•

  1. So if I am reading it right, only if and when African American college students agree to receive checks labeling them as "Negroes" do they receive aid from the UNCF or the Quaker's Educational Fund? In other words, to borrow from the Indiana Appellate Court, "the [nonprofit] supposed to be [their] advocate, refers to [students] in a racially offensive manner. While there is no evidence that [the nonprofits] intended harm to [African American students], the harm was nonetheless inflicted. [Black students are] presented to [academia and future employers] in a racially offensive manner. For these reasons, [such] performance [is] deficient and also prejudice[ial]." Maybe even DEPLORABLE???

  3. A high ranking Indiana supreme Court operative caught red handed leading a group using the uber offensive N word! She must denounce or be denounced! (Or not since she is an insider ... rules do not apply to them). Evidence here: http://m.indianacompanies.us/friends-educational-fund-for-negroes.364110.company.v2#top_info

  4. A high ranking bureaucrat with Ind sup court is heading up an organization celebrating the formal N word!!! She must resign and denounce! http://m.indianacompanies.us/friends-educational-fund-for-negroes.364110.company.v2#top_info

  5. ND2019, don't try to confuse the Left with facts. Their ideologies trump facts, trump due process, trump court rules, even trump federal statutes. I hold the proof if interested. Facts matter only to those who are not on an agenda-first mission.
