The Indiana Supreme Court issued an Order increasing the amount of distance education that is allowed. For attorneys whose three-year educational cycle ends December 31, 2020, those attorneys will be allowed to finish their needed hours all via distance education. For attorneys whose three-year educational cycle ends either December 31, 2021 or December 31, 2022, six hours will be added to the allowed distance education. So for those attorneys, the amount of allowed distance ed will be increased from 18.0 hours to 24.0 hours. If you would like to see the Order, it is on the Court’s website.

Upcoming IPDC Seminars

Case Review Remote Opportunities

IPDC training and research staff are available via Zoom to conduct case reviews with defenders. We can brainstorm your Theory of the Case, discuss evidentiary issues, help you plan cross examination, prep for oral argument, or address other case issues. A great way to stay connected with colleagues and case trends during these complex days.

Earn Distance CLEs [free for PD cases] and assist your clients. The more lead-time the better the experience, but we will set a session as-needed and schedule permitting.

Sessions run from 1-3 hours.

Please email me to set a session. There is a case review form that must be completed to guide the session and qualify for CLE credits. Stay well, Diane
