Indiana State Bar Association
Established in 1893, the Indiana State Bar Association (ISBA) was created as a voluntary organization for Indiana lawyers. The ISBA works to further the legal education of law students and lawyers in Indiana, champion necessary law reform, and increase the effectiveness of the administration of justice. As a direct consequence of the ISBAís goals, the Indiana State Bar Association aims to be beneficial to both the legal community and the general public of Indiana.
For more than a decade, LegalMatch has helped Indiana residents quickly and easily obtain legal representation. By utilizing the online system at LegalMatch, you can post your case, review in-depth attorney profiles, and connect with local attorneys. The entire service is completely free.
Since the Indiana State Bar Association serves the entire legal community of Indiana, the ISBA is the largest bar association in the state. All attorneys that are licensed to practice in the state of Indiana are eligible to join the Indiana State Bar Association. Membership for the Indiana State Bar Association is also open to law students, paralegals, legal administrators, judges, court administrators, and law librarians.
Many lawyers that work in Indiana join the Indiana State Bar Association for the numerous benefits that it makes available to its members. Several corporations that support the Indiana State Bar Association, including Menís Wearhouse, InterCall Conference Calling, UPS, AVIS Rental Car, and LexisNexis, offer discounts to members of the ISBA on services and goods that they use in their practice of the law. The Indiana State Bar Association also sends a number of publications to its members throughout the year in order to keep them informed of any changes in the laws and the general practice of law at a state level.
The ISBA also provides its members with several opportunities to grow on a professional level. Members that practice a specific type of law, such as litigation and employment law, are able to gain more insight into that practice area and connect with other Indiana lawyers that practice in that field by being active in the Indiana State Bar Associationís different law sections. Also, the Indiana State Bar Association allows for its members to learn more about different skills and nuances in the law by frequently hosting continuing legal education seminars on various legal topics and conferences geared towards different types of lawyers, such as solo practitioners.
Residents of Indiana are also benefited by the Indiana State Bar Association. The website for the ISBA contains links to several helpful databases for members of the general public that are interested in learning more about certain areas of state and federal law and the legal system in Indiana. Another way that the ISBA educates the people of Indiana about the law is through its We the People: The Citizen and the Constitution program, which educates school-age children about the different aspects of the Indiana state legislative process.
