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. Contact Lea Shelemey attorney in porter county Indiana. She just helped us win our case...she is awesome...

  2. We won!!!! It was a long expensive battle but we did it. I just wanted people to know it is possible. And if someone can point me I. The right direction to help change the way the courts look as grandparents as only grandparents. The courts assume the parent does what is in the best interest of the child...and the court is wrong. A lot of the time it is spite and vindictiveness that separates grandparents and grandchildren. It should not have been this long and hard and expensive...Something needs to change...

  3. Typo on # of Indiana counties

  4. The Supreme Court is very proud that they are Giving a billion dollar public company from Texas who owns Odyssey a statewide monopoly which consultants have said is not unnecessary but worse they have already cost Hoosiers well over $100 MILLION, costing tens of millions every year and Odyssey is still not connected statewide which is in violation of state law. The Supreme Court is using taxpayer money and Odyssey to compete against a Hoosier company who has the only system in Indiana that is connected statewide and still has 40 of the 82 counties despite the massive spending and unnecessary attacks

  5. Here's a recent resource regarding steps that should be taken for removal from the IN sex offender registry. I haven't found anything as comprehensive as of yet. Hopefully this is helpful - http://www.chjrlaw.com/removal-indiana-sex-offender-registry/
