Appellate Practice News

Posted on: Jul 26, 2016

The IndyBar Appellate Practice Section is excited to be accepting applications for the Jill Ellis Scholarship to attend the Appellate Judges Education Institute 2016 Summit from November 10-13 in Philadelphia, PA. At least one scholarship will be awarded in the amount of $1,500 and will cover the conference registration fee as well as a portion of travel and lodging expenses.

The annual AJEI Summit is a lively event, and provides a highly informative continuing legal education program designed by and for appellate judges, staff attorneys, and practitioners. Each year, the state of Indiana is remarkably well represented at the Summit by a large number of jurists and staff attorneys from the Indiana Court of Appeals and the Indiana Supreme Court, as well as a number of practicing appellate lawyers.

Preference will be given to appellate practice attorneys who have demonstrated an interest in active participation in the Indianapolis Bar Association and/or Appellate Practice Section of the IndyBar.

Go here to access the application. The deadline for applications is September 1, 2016. The recipient will be notified by September 15, 2016. Questions about the scholarship should be directed to Libby Goodknight, 2016 Chair of the Appellate Practice Section, at or 317-238-6315.
