On Oct. 10, Heartland Pro Bono Council will hold its annual Talk to a Lawyer Today training from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. at Barnes & Thornburg, 11 S. Meridian St., Indianapolis. The title of this year’s training is: “Amazingly Interesting CLE for Attorneys with a Heart Seminar.”
Topics covered during the day will include identity theft, paternity, advising debtors, estate planning, First Amendment concerns, and ethics.
Talk to a Lawyer Day will be Jan. 16, 2012 – Martin Luther King, Jr., Day.
