A new Midwest family law conference is looking for a few good papers to kick off its inaugural meeting in Indianapolis. The conference, "Jazzing up Family Law," will be June 13 at Indiana University School of Law - Indianapolis.

The Midwest Family Law Consortium founding members - Indiana University School of Law - Indianapolis, University of Missouri - Kansas City, and William Mitchell College of Law - are seeking papers and presenters for its family law conference. Papers can be submitted by anyone involved in matters regarding family law, including attorneys, social workers, students, and government officials, and topics can include anything regarding family law, said Professor Jennifer A. Drobac, Indiana University School of Law - Indianapolis.

The topics should be able to be synthesized into a 20-minute presentation. Authors can either group together themselves to form a panel, or they can ask the consortium to include them in a panel with similar subjects.

Drobac said she would love to receive a large response from the community, law students, and from the other law schools in the state. The number of papers accepted will depend on the amount submitted.

Select papers will be reviewed by the Indiana Law Review board to be included in its publication. Those papers will need to be academic, include formal footnotes, and be suitable for law review publication, she said.

At this time, specific information about accommodations, fees, and potential CLE credits for the conference are still being worked out, Drobac said. Indianapolis will host the first conference, with sites around the Midwest hosting the conference in upcoming years.

Anyone who is interested in presenting a paper should e-mail Drobac at jdrobac@iupui.edu. The e-mail should include the title of the paper, an abstract, and resume, or the completed paper if applicable. Deadline to submit a paper for the conference is March 31.

  1. Why are all these lawyers yakking to the media about pending matters? Trial by media? What the devil happened to not making extrajudicial statements? The system is falling apart.

  2. It is a sad story indeed as this couple has been only in survival mode, NOT found guilty with Ponzi, shaken down for 5 years and pursued by prosecution that has been ignited by a civil suit with very deep pockets wrenched in their bitterness...It has been said that many of us are breaking an average of 300 federal laws a day without even knowing it. Structuring laws, & civilForfeiture laws are among the scariest that need to be restructured or repealed . These laws were initially created for drug Lords and laundering money and now reach over that line. Here you have a couple that took out their own money, not drug money, not laundering. Yes...Many upset that they lost money...but how much did they make before it all fell apart? No one ask that question? A civil suit against Williams was awarded because he has no more money to fight...they pushed for a break in order...they took all his belongings...even underwear, shoes and clothes? who does that? What allows that? Maybe if you had the picture of him purchasing a jacket at the Goodwill just to go to court the next day...his enemy may be satisfied? But not likely...bitterness is a master. For happy ending lovers, you will be happy to know they have a faith that has changed their world and a solid love that many of us can only dream about. They will spend their time in federal jail for taking their money from their account, but at the end of the day they have loyal friends, a true love and a hope of a new life in time...and none of that can be bought or taken That is the real story.

  3. Could be his email did something especially heinous, really over the top like questioning Ind S.Ct. officials or accusing JLAP of being the political correctness police.

  4. Sounds like overkill to me, too. Do the feds not have enough "real" crime to keep them busy?

  5. We live in the world that has become wider in sense of business and competition. Everything went into the Web in addition to the existing physical global challenges in business. I heard that one of the latest innovations is moving to VDR - cloud-based security-protected repositories. Of course virtual data rooms comparison is required if you want to pick up the best one.
