Back to TopCommentsE-mailPrintBookmark and Share

The Indiana State Bar Association has partnered with Butler University’s College of Business, Executive Education Office, to offer Business School for Lawyers beginning in August.

Attorneys who complete all five sessions will earn a Certificate of Business Administration. The sessions will be Aug. 24 and 25, Sept. 14, Oct. 5 and Nov. 9.

On Aug. 24, “Strategic Thinking for Lawyers” will cover the use of strategic thinking in setting long-term goals for a law firm. The goal of this session is to introduce strategic thinking and analysis to attorneys and to demonstrate its value.

A session on business development on Aug. 25 will provide a comprehensive overview of the components of a business development plan, along with action strategies to help attorneys develop and implement a plan.

On Sept. 14, “Financial Accounting & Tax Reporting” will introduce important financial, managerial and tax reporting concepts that are relevant to law firms.

The Oct. 5 session is a follow-up to the Aug. 25 business development session and will focus on how to implement specific strategies.  

The final session on Nov. 9 is “Developing a Law Firm’s Human Capital.” The goal of this session is to introduce leadership and human-capital development techniques and demonstrate how an attorney can use these techniques to help manage the daily activities of a firm and provide longer-term opportunities for employee development. Butler University College of Business has identified a number of core leadership capabilities and will zero in on the most crucial ones.

The cost for ISBA members is $575 per session or $525 per session, if an attorney registers for all five. The cost for ISBA Young Lawyers Section members is $475 per session. The cost is $675 per session for non-ISBA members.

Registration information is available online at www.inbar.org. For additional information, contact Maryann Williams at 800-266-2581 or mwilliams@inbar.org.

  2. Hail to our Constitutional Law Expert in the Executive Office! “What you’re not paying attention to is the fact that I just took an action to change the law,” Obama said.

  3. What is this, the Ind Supreme Court thinking that there is a separation of powers and limited enumerated powers as delegated by a dusty old document? Such eighteen century thinking, so rare and unwanted by the elites in this modern age. Dictate to us, dictate over us, the massess are chanting! George Soros agrees. Time to change with times Ind Supreme Court, says all President Snows. Rule by executive decree is the new black.

  4. I made the same argument before a commission of the Indiana Supreme Court and then to the fedeal district and federal appellate courts. Fell flat. So very glad to read that some judges still beleive that evidentiary foundations matter.

  5. KUDOS to the Indiana Supreme Court for realizing that some bureacracies need to go to the stake. Recall what RWR said: "No government ever voluntarily reduces itself in size. Government programs, once launched, never disappear. Actually, a government bureau is the nearest thing to eternal life we'll ever see on this earth!" NOW ... what next to this rare and inspiring chopping block? Well, the Commission on Gender and Race (but not religion!?!) is way overdue. And some other Board's could be cut with a positive for State and the reputation of the Indiana judiciary.
