ISBA presents business school for lawyers

Back to TopCommentsE-mailPrint

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. Frankly, it is tragic that you are even considering going to an expensive, unaccredited "law school." It is extremely difficult to get a job with a degree from a real school. If you are going to make the investment of time, money, and tears into law school, it should not be to a place that won't actually enable you to practice law when you graduate.

  2. As a lawyer who grew up in Fort Wayne (but went to a real law school), it is not that hard to find a mentor in the legal community without your school's assistance. One does not need to pay tens of thousands of dollars to go to an unaccredited legal diploma mill to get a mentor. Having a mentor means precisely nothing if you cannot get a job upon graduation, and considering that the legal job market is utterly terrible, these students from Indiana Tech are going to be adrift after graduation.

  3. 700,000 to 800,000 Americans are arrested for marijuana possession each year in the US. Do we need a new justice center if we decriminalize marijuana by having the City Council enact a $100 fine for marijuana possession and have the money go towards road repair?

  4. I am sorry to hear this.

  5. I tried a case in Judge Barker's court many years ago and I recall it vividly as a highlight of my career. I don't get in federal court very often but found myself back there again last Summer. We had both aged a bit but I must say she was just as I had remembered her. Authoritative, organized and yes, human ...with a good sense of humor. I also appreciated that even though we were dealing with difficult criminal cases, she treated my clients with dignity and understanding. My clients certainly respected her. Thanks for this nice article. Congratulations to Judge Barker for reaching another milestone in a remarkable career.
