DRI Law Student Initiative for Indiana

DRI Law Student Initiative for Indiana
03/30/2009

SweetinBleeke is spearheading DRI’s efforts in Indiana to reach out to law students interested in careers as trial lawyers by forming the first ever DRI Law Student Organization at Indiana University School of Law – Indianapolis. Through both sponsorship and active participation with the newly formed student organization, DRI and SweetinBleeke look forward to increasing future lawyer’s awareness and understanding of DRI and its potential impact on their future careers.

Activities will include sending students to DRI seminars around the country, providing speakers on trial tactics, mock juries, for real cases, trial practice training and networking opportunities for potential law clerkships and careers.

“DRI is invaluable, both in terms of networking opportunities with attorneys and potential clients form across the country and in terms of the incredible substantive and trial practice knowledge to be gained through DRI’s seminars,” said Owner and Managing Partner, Doris Sweetin. “Through the student organization, we hope to create a pipeline of great talent for Indiana’s insurance defense firms and, more importantly, give the students access to real-world experiences and speakers that they don’t get in law school.”

SweetinBleeke also plans to start similar initiatives at the other law schools around the State of Indiana and also to create a network of insurance defense firms to act as resources for speakers, training and sponsorship.
