Please continue to check the “Events and Education” section of the IndyBar website periodically throughout the year for additional events and more details.
Also, as your 2019 Section Chair, let me introduce myself. I am a Partner in the Litigation Department at Barnes & Thornburg LLP, and a member of the firm’s eDiscovery, Data and Document Management Practice Group. I earned my J.D. cum laude from the Robert H. McKinney School of Law. I have been involved in the IndyBar since law school – receiving the Law Student of the Year Award in 2009, graduating from Bar Leader Series (Class XV) in 2018, and serving as the Young Lawyer’s Division Chair in 2016, and the Chair of this Section in 2019.
