Bar Crawl is Indiana Lawyer’s new section that will highlight bar association news around the state. We try to include bar association news and trends in our regular stories, but we want to include more news from specialty and county bars. If you’d like to submit an update about your bar association or a photo from an event your bar association has hosted to Indiana Lawyer, or if you have questions about having your bar association news included in the newspaper, please send it to Rebecca Berfanger, rberfanger@ibj.com, along with contact information for any follow up questions at least two weeks in advance of the issue date.

The Tippecanoe County Bar Association, which has about 100 active dues-paying members, has elected the following Lafayette attorneys to be officers: Randall L. Vonderheide, Vonderheide & Knecht, president; Robert S. Laszynski, Laszynski & Moore, vice president; Beth Searle, Ball Eggleston, secretary; and Richard Bartholomew, Girardot Strauch & Co., treasurer.

The elections took place April 21, according to a May 27 announcement from the bar.

The Tippecanoe County Bar Association is a volunteer bar association. Most of the dues, recently raised from $80 to $100 per year, provide support to the Legal Aid Society of Tippecanoe County. The legal aid organization is a United Way agency that provides low- or no-cost legal services to those who otherwise couldn’t afford them.

The bar association announced at the April meeting that it would give $10,000 to the society. In 2009, the organization gave $9,000.

The bar is “fairly active in the sense most lawyers know each other,” Vonderheide said, even though the organization is not particularly active in terms of having regular events and meetings.

As president, he said he hoped “to bridge the connection between young lawyers and established lawyers.”

To increase membership, he also plans to market the bar association by implementing a website and by having the bar association host luncheon meetings that would include courses for CLE credit about various topics of interest to attorneys in Tippecanoe County.

The bar association already hosts events to raise funds for the Legal Aid Society of Tippecanoe County as well as social and networking events.•

  1. Hail to our Constitutional Law Expert in the Executive Office! “What you’re not paying attention to is the fact that I just took an action to change the law,” Obama said.

  2. What is this, the Ind Supreme Court thinking that there is a separation of powers and limited enumerated powers as delegated by a dusty old document? Such eighteen century thinking, so rare and unwanted by the elites in this modern age. Dictate to us, dictate over us, the massess are chanting! George Soros agrees. Time to change with times Ind Supreme Court, says all President Snows. Rule by executive decree is the new black.

  3. I made the same argument before a commission of the Indiana Supreme Court and then to the fedeal district and federal appellate courts. Fell flat. So very glad to read that some judges still beleive that evidentiary foundations matter.

  4. KUDOS to the Indiana Supreme Court for realizing that some bureacracies need to go to the stake. Recall what RWR said: "No government ever voluntarily reduces itself in size. Government programs, once launched, never disappear. Actually, a government bureau is the nearest thing to eternal life we'll ever see on this earth!" NOW ... what next to this rare and inspiring chopping block? Well, the Commission on Gender and Race (but not religion!?!) is way overdue. And some other Board's could be cut with a positive for State and the reputation of the Indiana judiciary.

  5. During a visit where an informant with police wears audio and video, does the video necessary have to show hand to hand transaction of money and narcotics?
