Back to TopCommentsE-mailPrintBookmark and Share

Central Indiana students who have an interest in the law will get an up-close-and-personal look at it through an intensive summer program beginning June 6 at Indiana University School of Law – Indianapolis.

Just The Beginning Foundation, a nonprofit organization of lawyers, judges, and other citizens dedicated to developing an interest in the law among a diverse group of people, is presenting the free program to 35 Indianapolis-area diverse and underserved students. The weeklong Summer Legal Institute hopes to inspire students to consider and pursue a career in the legal field.

JTBF is partnering with U.S. Judge Tanya Walton Pratt, Bose McKinney & Evans, Barnes & Thornburg, Ice Miller, Reach for Youth Inc., and the law school to host various parts of the institute, including a networking reception, lunches with attorneys, and negotiation exercises, said Dana Horst, director of development and marketing for JTBF. Judge Pratt will host a Federal Courts Day June 7.

This is the second year JTBF has conducted the Summer Legal Institute in Indianapolis. The first program was held in June 2010. Horst said the organization hopes to make Indianapolis an annual program site for the Summer Legal Institute.

A few openings remain available for students. Those interested in attending should download the application and send it to the program directors at summerprograms@jtbf.org. Applications must be received by noon on June 3. Those interested in volunteering can contact the program directors or Horst at dhorst@jtbf.org.

  1. by the time anybody gets to such files they will probably have been totally vacuumed anyways. they're pros at this at universities. anything to protect their incomes. Still, a laudable attempt. Let's go for throat though: how about the idea of unionizing football college football players so they can get a fair shake for their work? then if one of the players is a pain in the neck cut them loose instead of protecting them. if that kills the big programs, great, what do they have to do with learning anyways? nada. just another way for universities to rake in the billions even as they skate from paying taxes with their bogus "nonprofit" status.

  2. Um the affidavit from the lawyer is admissible, competent evidence of reasonableness itself. And anybody who had done law work in small claims court would not have blinked at that modest fee. Where do judges come up with this stuff? Somebody is showing a lack of experience and it wasn't the lawyers

  3. My children were taken away a year ago due to drugs, and u struggled to get things on track, and now that I have been passing drug screens for almost 6 months now and not missing visits they have already filed to take my rights away. I need help.....I can't loose my babies. Plz feel free to call if u can help. Sarah at 765-865-7589

  4. Females now rule over every appellate court in Indiana, and from the federal southern district, as well as at the head of many judicial agencies. Give me a break, ladies! Can we men organize guy-only clubs to tell our sob stories about being too sexy for our shirts and not being picked for appellate court openings? Nope, that would be sexist! Ah modernity, such a ball of confusion. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QmRsWdK0PRI

  5. LOL thanks Jennifer, thanks to me for reading, but not reading closely enough! I thought about it after posting and realized such is just what was reported. My bad. NOW ... how about reporting who the attorneys were raking in the Purdue alum dollars?
