The Appellate Practice Section is excited to announce that the Jill Ellis Scholarship is available for an attorney to attend the Appellate Judges Education Institute 2015 Summit
on November 12-15 in Washington, DC. The scholarship will be 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 provides a lively and highly informative continuing legal education program designed by and for appellate judges, appellate lawyers and appellate staff attorneys. Each year our state 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 attorneys.
Preference for the scholarship will be given to:
- Appellate practice attorneys
- Individuals demonstrating interest in active Indianapolis Bar Association and/or Appellate Practice Section participation
- First-time attendees of the AJEI Conference
- Attorneys practicing in the fields of government or public service, or others who demonstrate that the costs of this conference are a barrier to attend
