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.

  1. I have had an ongoing custody case for 6 yrs. I should have been the sole legal custodial parent but was a victim of a vindictive ex and the system biasedly supported him. He is an alcoholic and doesn't even have a license for two yrs now after his 2nd DUI. Fast frwd 6 yrs later my kids are suffering poor nutritional health, psychological issues, failing in school, have NO MD and the GAL could care less, DCS doesn't care. The child isn't getting his ADHD med he needs and will not succeed in life living this way. NO one will HELP our family.I tried for over 6 yrs. The judge called me an idiot for not knowing how to enter evidence and the last hearing was 8 mths ago. That in itself is unjust! The kids want to be with their Mother! They are being alienated from her and fed lies by their Father! I was hit in a car accident 3 yrs ago and am declared handicapped myself. Poor poor way to treat the indigent in Indiana!

  2. The Indiana DOE released the 2015-2016 school grades in Dec 2016 and my local elementary school is a "C" grade school. Look at the MCCSC boundary maps and how all of the most affluent neighborhoods have the best performance. It is no surprise that obtaining residency in the "A" school boundaries cost 1.5 to 3 times as much. As a parent I should have more options than my "C" school without needing to pay the premium to live in the affluent parts of town. If the charter were authorized by a non-religious school the plaintiffs would still be against it because it would still be taking per-pupil money from them. They are hiding behind the guise of religion as a basis for their argument when this is clearly all about money and nothing else.

  3. This is a horrible headline. The article is about challenging the ability of Grace College to serve as an authorizer. 7 Oaks is not a religiously affiliated school

  4. Congratulations to Judge Carmichael for making it to the final three! She is an outstanding Judge and the people of Indiana will benefit tremendously if/when she is chosen.

  5. The headline change to from "religious" to "religious-affiliated" is still inaccurate and terribly misleading.
