2013 Indiana Law Update Starts Today!

2013 Indiana Law Update Starts Today!

35th Annual Judge Robert H. Staton Indiana Law Update: An ICLEF CLE Seminar Since 1979The 35TH Annual Judge Robert H. Staton Indiana Law UpdateTM program began in 1979 under the Chairmanship of the late Honorable Robert H. Staton and continues to offer the finest scholarly review of the latest trends, developments and changes in Indiana Law. Offering 12 CLE credits along with 1 Ethics credit, it’s an outstanding value for your CLE dollar.

ICLEF has no political affiliations, special interest involvement or lobby activities which would influence our programming. This allows for the most diverse course offerings available with multiple perspectives discussed. Recently, a new program has been developed that purports to be the “Same Program–Same Speakers & Materials you have always relied on.” It utilizes a very similar name as Indiana Law UpdateTM, but do not be confused – Indiana Law UpdateTM has no duplicate.

This year, ICLEF welcomes Indiana Court of Appeals Judge Melissa S. May to the helm as Seminar Chair. In addition to her perspectives and insights as an Appellate Judge, Judge May brings much experience in the realm of CLE as a panelist, presenter and program chair of numerous ICLEF programs.

ICLEF continues its commitment to scholarship with Indiana Law UpdateTM. ICLEF will donate a portion of the program proceeds for law student scholarships to each of the four Indiana law schools: Indiana University Maurer School of Law, Indiana University Robert H. McKinney School of Law, University of Notre Dame Law School and Valparaiso University Law School.

If you want the very finest Update program, attend on September 26-27, 2013 in the 500 Ballroom of the Indiana Convention Center or at one of the live Group Webcast locations around the state. This year you can watch Indiana Law UpdateTM from the comfort of your home or office as both days will be available as Live Individual Webcasts. And finally, if you miss the Live or Webcast seminars you can always attend one of the Video Replays of Indiana Law UpdateTM that will be shown throughout the state following the Live dates.
