Indiana Lawyer is in the midst of conducting a survey that is sure to reveal interesting attitudes and insights about what it is like to practice law in Indiana today. But without your opinions, the survey will not be complete. If you have not had an opportunity to take our survey, please take a moment to do so at www.theindianalawyer.com/survey-2015.
Our intention with this survey is to provide readers a snapshot of where the profession stands, as a whole, on some of the issues that have had significant impact on the day-to-day practice of law.
When Indiana Lawyer began publishing 25 years ago, few could predict the challenges and opportunities that the 21st century would bring. As we assess the profession’s views on technology, management practices, legal education, client relationships, professional satisfaction and other topics, we hope to give readers some of the tools necessary to look ahead and prepare themselves and their organizations for continued success.
Following the completion of the 2015 Practicing Law in Indiana survey, Indiana Lawyer, in partnership with Indiana University Maurer School of Law, will present a CLE program breaking down the survey results and discussing what the information gleaned tells us about Indiana’s legal profession.
Led by IU Maurer professor Bill Henderson, a panel including Supreme Court Chief Justice Loretta Rush, IU Maurer Dean Austen Parrish, IU McKinney Dean Andrew Klein, Faegre Baker Daniels attorney Jay Yeager and ABA Deputy Executive Director Jim Dimos will analyze the survey results and discuss what lawyers can take away from the collective data provided.
The legal profession is in an interesting time of transition. We regularly hear from attorneys how the infusion of legal technology combined with economic changes have caused many to question traditional business models and look for ways to more effectively compete for and serve clients. I hope that you will participate in this survey and, in turn, benefit from the information it provides.•
