Indiana Municipal Lawyers Association

The Indiana Municipal Lawyers Association (IMLA) was formed in 1983 to collect and disseminate information on matters of concern to attorneys practicing in the field of municipal law, promote the continuing education of attorneys on issues affecting municipal law, and provide forums for attorneys practicing municipal law to meet and exchange ideas and professional experience.

Municipal Law Seminar XXXVII, June 25-26

Municipal Law is designed to keep the local government attorney current on important legislative and case law changes over the past year and to provide up to 9.0 hours of continuing legal education (CLE) credits, including one hour of ethics.

Aim and the IMLA Board of Directors have made the determination because of the pandemic that the Municipal Law Seminar XXXVII will be held virtually on the previously scheduled dates of June 25 and 26.  While the conference this year will look a little different than you’re used to, the IMLA Board is hard at work securing first-class speakers, lining up 9 hours of CLE credits, and building in some valuable digital networking time.  The State and Federal Case Law Update, Legislative Update and Ethics sessions will be available. 

Aim now offers CLE Distant Education Credits when you participate in certain qualifying webinars. Watch for webinar advertisements informing attorneys of CLE Distant Education Credits. If you have any questions about whether a particular webinar will qualify for CLE, please contact [email protected]  Distant Education CLE credits are limited. The mandatory continuing legal education rule provides that no more than eighteen (18) hours of the 3-year Educational Period requirement shall be filled through interactive Distance Education.

NOTE: Because of the public emergency issued by the Governor of Indiana as related to the Covid-19 virus, the Indiana Supreme Court in Case No. 20S-MS-239 has WAIVED the Distance Education limits in Indiana Admission and Discipline Rule 28, Sections 3(a) and 3(b), and Rule 29, Section 3(a) WAIVED for all attorneys, judges, and State Level Judicial Officers whose three-year Educational Period or Judicial Officer Educational Period ends on December 31, 2020. Those credit-hour limitations are AMENDED for all other attorneys, judges, and State Level Judicial Officers as follows: Judges and attorneys whose educational periods expire on or before December 31, 2022 may obtain no more than 24 hours of distance education; and State Level Judicial Officers whose educational period expires on or before December 31, 2022, may obtain no more than 36 hours by distance education.

IMLA dues are for the calendar year. Dues renewal notices have been sent for 2020 IMLA dues. If you did not get a dues renewal you may use the invoice/application blank available by clicking here.

Notice of Additional Fee for Failure to Timely Turn in Program Attendance Certification Sheets Following the Event

The Indiana Commission on Continuing Legal Education has adopted a fee schedule for late applications and attendance filings. If Aim has to make a late filing because the Attendance Certification Sheet was not turned in by the attendee in a timely fashion, then Aim will ask for the late fee before the CLE attendance filing is made.
