New Resource Available: Indiana Law Review Blog - IndyBar Blog

IndyBar Blog


Posted on: Mar 2, 2015
The Indiana Law Review at the IU Robert H. McKinney School of Law is pleased to announce that, in addition to its four printed issues, it has established an online presence that will serve as a more accessible and timely resource for legal practitioners, members of the judiciary, legal scholars and law students. The Indiana Law Review blog is the first of its kind in Indiana and will seek to highlight ideas and opinions that are worthy of dissemination but may not make it into a published issue.

Because the blog articles will be aimed at a more practical application of the law than the print edition, brief articles from practitioners will be especially relevant. Each published author will be allowed to post their firm affiliation, contact information and links to their social media profiles, firm website and legal blog. Instructions for submitting articles for consideration may be found on the blog’s website.

We recommend that you check out their site. You can subscribe and join the discussion on their blog here, follow them on social media (Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn) and submit articles for consideration.

Congrats to the Indiana Law Review on this great new resource. Keep reading for a taste of what you'll find on the blog, featuring a piece by IndyBar law student member Burnell K. Grimes!

From the Indiana Law Review blog:

Burnell K. Grimes Jr., a 2L at the IU Robert H. McKinney School of Law, was selected to win the Indiana Law Review’s first writing competition.

“Of all the competition submissions, his stood out as both substantive and relevant to Indiana legal practitioners, which is exactly the type of article we initially envisioned when we created the blog at the beginning of the Fall 2014 semester,” said Reid Dodge, editor-in-chief of the Indiana Law Review.

Grimes’ article titled “The Best of Both Worlds: A Solution to Indiana’s Appointment of Counsel Funding Problem” discusses a proposed solution to improve the efficiency and efficacy of the legal aid and pro bono programs for Indiana’s indigent populations.
