July 17, 2018

Indiana law students, recent graduates and new attorneys, and paralegals are invited to further the discourse on legal ethics by participating in the Indiana State Bar Association’s legal ethics essay contest.

Participants who enter the essay contest may write about any ethics-related topic of interest to them or the legal community. The complete essay should not exceed 2,000 words, including endnotes.

Essays must be submitted electronically in Microsoft Word format to ISBA local and specialty bar liaison Catheryne Pully no later than August 3 at 11:59 a.m. Submissions will be judged by members of the ISBA Legal Ethics Committee, which is chaired by Barnes & Thornburg partner Steven Badger.

The winning essayist will receive a $500 price and will have the opportunity to submit their essay for possible publication in Res Gestae, the bar’s official journal.
