MORE: The ISBA Service Committee, created in 2012, stands for hands-on community service, with the goal to inspire attorneys to get their hands dirty in digging trenches, cleaning up their local parks, adopting streets, building homes, and aiding in disaster relief. While many State Bar committees and sections perform seasonal service activities, both legal and nonlegal, most are not supported by a committee structured to be completely devoted to nonlegal community service, where members of the bench and bar play an active role in improving the physical appearance of serviced communities. Although attorneys throughout the Hoosier State are not strangers to the idea of community service, before now there has never been an organized effort throughout the state that enabled the bench and bar to help their communities outside the realms of the legal world. The ISBA Service Committee is an innovative concept for bar associations and hopes to serve as a nationwide model for direct community service and unifying members of state, local and specialty bar associations, and to stand as a beacon of light for improving the reputation of the legal community as a whole.
