Bar Crawl is Indiana Lawyer’s section highlighting bar association news around the state. The IL strives to include bar association news and trends in its regular stories, and we would like 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, or if you have questions about having your bar association news included in the newspaper, please send it to Jenny Montgomery at [email protected], along with contact information for any follow-up questions at least two weeks in advance of the issue date.
The Indiana State Bar Association Bankruptcy & Creditors’ Rights Section is looking for attorneys to volunteer for one-hour financial education presentations at Indiana high schools on Nov. 8.
The section will provide curriculum and all materials for volunteers to help guide discussions with students about financial matters, types of debt, the true cost of credit and the importance of sound financial choices. Volunteers are required to contact a local high school to set up a presentation.
For more information or for presentation materials, contact Maryann Williams at 800-266-2581 or at [email protected]
