The Indiana State Bar Association’s Legal Ethics Committee – along with the Young Lawyers Section and Written Publications Committee – is again, in promotion of the continued discussion on ethics in our profession, sponsoring ISBA’s yearly ethics essay contest. The contest, open to Indiana law students, new lawyers and paralegals, boasts a cash prize for the top entry as well as the chance to have one’s essay featured in the State Bar’s flagship publication, Res Gestae.
