Sheraton Indianapolis Hotel at Keystone Crossing
118th ISBA Annual Meeting in Indianapolis Oct. 8-10; register today
You won't want to miss this year's Annual Meeting Oct. 8-10 at the Sheraton Indianapolis Hotel at Keystone Crossing featuring keynote speaker Morris Dees, co-founder and chief trial attorney for the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC). In the decades since its founding, the SPLC has shut down some of the nation's most dangerous white supremacist groups. Dees will speak at the luncheon scheduled from noon to 2 p.m. on Thursday, Oct. 9. Individual tickets are available.
Also this year, the ISBA is hosting the American Bar Association traveling exhibit, Magna Carta: Enduring Legacy 1215-2015, curated by the Library of Congress at the Indiana Statehouse during its fall meeting. In anticipation of the document’s 800th anniversary, the exhibit will feature spectacular images on free-standing banners that will tell the story of the Magna Carta and its catalyst role in promoting the rule of law. Please note: This exhibit is open to the public from Sept. 29 to Oct. 10.
As a result, the Annual Meeting is expanding to three full days, adding panels and topics about the Magna Carta and the rule of law. In addition to Dees keynote luncheon presentation, and in conjunction with the exhibit, the fall meeting will include a two-hour CLE program on Oct. 8 about the significant impact the Magna Carta has had on the culture in which we have been raised, both from an American and British perspective, and the rule of law around the world and here at home. Panelists will include Garrison Sergeant Major Billy Mott, Ceremonial Warrant Officer, London; Jon Laramore, Faegre Baker Daniels; Hon. John D. Tinder, U.S. Court of Appeals of the Seventh Circuit; Wm. T. (Bill) Robinson, Frost Brown Todd, Fmr. ABA President; Hon. Steven H. David, Indiana Supreme Court; and ISBA President Jim Dimos, Frost Brown Todd.
