Scott Wylie, attorney and director of the Vanderburgh Community Foundation, has been named as the first full-time staff director of the Volunteer Lawyer Program of Southwestern Indiana. He will replace retiring plan administrator Beverly Corn who led the program for more than 12 years.

“We are delighted that Scott will be heading our efforts going forward,” said VLP board co-chair Vanderburgh Magistrate Judge Sheila Corcoran. “He is a national leader in the delivery of civil legal aid services and will bring decades of experience to this role.”

The Volunteer Lawyer Program provides legal services for the indigent and coordinates attorney pro bono work in the 11 counties around the Evansville metropolitan area. Corn became plan administrator about 2003 and guided the program through the Great Recession.

In December, the Indiana Bar Foundation recognized her dedication and drive by honoring Corn with the Randall T. Shepard Award for Excellence in Pro Bono.
Wylie is familiar with legal aid to the poor. He has been involved with the VLP since 2007 and serves on the boards of the Indiana Bar Foundation, Indiana Legal Services and the Indiana Philanthropy Alliance.

Also, he was recently appointed to the Indiana Coalition for Court Access, created by the Indiana Supreme Court to review and coordinate civil legal aid programs.

  1. He did not have an "unlicensed handgun" in his pocket. Firearms are not licensed in Indiana. He apparently possessed a handgun without a license to carry, but it's not the handgun that is licensed (or registered).

  2. Once again, Indiana's legislature proves how friendly it is to monopolies. This latest bill by Hershman demonstrates the lengths Indiana's representatives are willing to go to put big business's (especially utilities') interests above those of everyday working people. Maassal argues that if the technology (solar) is so good, it will be able to compete on its own. Too bad he doesn't feel the same way about the industries he represents. Instead, he wants to cut the small credit consumers get for using solar in order to "add a 'level of certainty'" to his industry. I haven't heard of or seen such a blatant money-grab by an industry since the days when our federal, state, and local governments were run by the railroad. Senator Hershman's constituents should remember this bill the next time he runs for office, and they should penalize him accordingly.

  3. From his recent appearance on WRTV to this story here, Frank is everywhere. Couldn't happen to a nicer guy, although he should stop using Eric Schnauffer for his 7th Circuit briefs. They're not THAT hard.

  4. They learn our language prior to coming here. My grandparents who came over on the boat, had to learn English and become familiarize with Americas customs and culture. They are in our land now, speak ENGLISH!!

  5. @ Rebecca D Fell, I am very sorry for your loss. I think it gives the family solace and a bit of closure to go to a road side memorial. Those that oppose them probably did not experience the loss of a child or a loved one.
