The 2013 Annual Meeting of the Judicial Conference of Indiana started Sept. 18, with judges and magistrates from around the state gathering in Fort Wayne.
In a letter to members of the bench, Indiana Supreme Court Chief Justice Brent Dickson touted this year’s annual meeting as enabling “Indiana judges and magistrates to keep up to date on Indiana law, to learn new information, to enhance skills, and … to interact with our judicial colleagues from across Indiana.”
The workshops listed on the conference agenda cover a variety of judicial topics. Sessions lasting an hour or more will include a review of the new criminal code passed by the 2013 Indiana General Assembly, an examination of the state’s new expungement law and a discussion of sentencing issues.
Other meetings will cover ethics, civil law, new court rules and pro se litigants.
The conference will continue through Friday morning.
