Standards and Information

The Applied Professionalism Course is the six-hour course newly admitted Indiana attorneys must take during their first three-year education period. This course is designed to help attorneys bridge-the-gap between their formal education and the practice of law. Sponsors may design an applied professionalism program to suit the particular needs of newly admitted attorneys in that area.

There are limited grant funds available on a reimbursement basis to sponsors to encourage the provision of low cost or no cost applied professionalism courses to new admitted attorneys.


The Indiana Commission for Continuing Legal Education has made funds available to continuing legal education providers to present Applied Professionalism Courses for newly admitted attorneys. The intent of the Court in awarding these grants is to promote and enhance low or no-cost, quality continuing legal education for Indiana newly licensed attorneys pursuant to Admission and Discipline Rule 29, section 3(b).
