Paralegals News

Posted on: Jan 15, 2015

By Lottie Wathen, Cohen & Malad LLP 

How many times in your life have you heard someone say, It's not what you know but who you know that makes the difference? Let the paralegal members of the Indianapolis Bar Association be the who you know to make a difference - in your professional life AND in your personal life. You may be surprised how many people you meet through professional organizations become lifelong friends. We have a lot of exciting things on tap for 2015 and would love to have all of the paralegal members of the IndyBar join us to meet your peers and make new friends!

Here are just a few of the things planned for the IndyBar Paralegal Members this year:

Speed Dating

IndyBar Paralegal Members will be attending “speed dating” events this year at Marian University and IUPUI with other speed dating events possible. On the speed dates, paralegals are posted at stations to talk about their job and to allow paralegal students to ask questions. A timer is used and each time the “buzzer” sounds, the paralegal students move to a different station. It is a great deal of fun and the paralegal students are thrilled with the opportunity to get a real life perspective from working paralegals. Please contact Julia Kleischmidt  at if you are interested in participating in the speed dating events.

Open Meetings

All IndyBar Paralegal members are invited to attend our Open Meetings/Roundtable Discussions this year. Bring your lunch and join your colleagues and peers for open discussions on various topics. This will be a great informal way to network and discuss topics relevant to our careers. Keep an eye out for announcements of the dates for these meetings.


We already have two CLEs in the works:

Please contact Debi Binkley at to get information about these CLEs or if you have additional CLE topics in mind.

Other Events
  • Sponsor Appreciation Event
  • Annual Paralegal Appreciation Luncheon
  • Annual Joint Meeting with the Affiliate Members of the Indiana State Bar Association and the Indiana Paralegal Association
  • Annual Teddy Bear Drive and Holiday Luncheon

We hope to see you at some or all of these events this year!
