In This Issue of Indiana Lawyer

NOV. 10-23, 2021

Some major leadership changes are happening at some well-known Indianapolis law firms. Starting Jan. 1, Gregg Wallander will become the president and CEO of Hall Render Killian Heath & Lyman, while Michael Millikan and Rebecca Seamands will take over as chief managing partner and deputy managing partner, respectively, for Ice Miller. Senior reporter Marilyn Odendahl spoke with the three to gain some insight on what these changes mean. Marilyn also caught up with Bradley Skolnik, executive director of the Indiana Office of Admissions and Continuing Education, who has recently taken on a national leadership role.  This week's focus section is on immigration. Managing editor Jordan Morey has the scoop on a potential expansion of the Clay County Jail, which could soon become the only ICE detention facility between Kentucky and Wisconsin. For this issue's web exclusive, reporter Katie Stancombe sat down with the leadership of The Mediation Group, which is celebrating 20 years in 2021. Also in this week's issue is the annual Leadership in Law awards, so be sure to check out all of this year's winners. All that and more in the Nov. 10, 2021 issue of the Indiana Lawyer
