The Evansville Bar Association is hosting a discussion about access to justice and pro bono practice rules at its first Randall T. Shepard Lecture Series Tuesday evening.
The inaugural lecture will begin at 5:30 p.m. at the Vanderburgh Old Courthouse Randall T. Shepard Courtroom in Evansville. Former Indiana Supreme Court Chief Justice Randall Shepard, who was a judge of the Vanderburgh Superior Court for five years, will attend the lecture and offer opening remarks.
The lecture’s featured speaker will be Jon Laramore, executive director of Indiana Legal Services. Laramore’s presentation will focus on access to justice for all and rules for pro bono attorneys, and will be followed by a panel discussion on the same topics. Panel members will include U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Indiana Chief Judge Richard Young, Evansville attorney Beverly Corn and Laramore. The event will be moderated by current Vanderburgh Superior Judge Les Shively.
The event is open to members of the local bench and bar, and students from the Shepard Academy for Law and Social Justice and Ivy Tech Community College. Members of the public are also invited to attend.
