We will be seeking CLE accreditation for this event.
For more than 60 years, the ACLU of Indiana's work in advancing civil liberties has helped define our concepts of freedom and liberty. Whether defending 4th Amendment protections in front of the U.S. Supreme Court or filling class actions on behalf of mentally ill prisoners, our legal team's work has been devoted to upholding the rights and protections of all individuals guaranteed by our state and federal Constitutions. The Larry Reuben Constitutional Law Forum is an opportunity for lawyers to gain an insider knowledge of the headline generating work of the ACLU of Indiana's legal team, participate in the broader discussion of contemporary civil liberty issues, and support the targeted and strategic legal work of the ACLU of Indiana. The forum will fulfill its mission by offering:
· Invitation and admission to two annual events with Ken Falk to discuss current cases and civil liberties trends, such as the recently upcoming CLF event Use and Abuse of Executive Power. These discussions will potentially have CLE certification.
· Advance notice of hearings for major ACLU of Indiana cases.
· Insider briefings on nationwide cases from our national legal staff.
· ACLU of Indiana staff-led state legislative briefings.
· Invitations to "Beer and Civil Liberties" networking forums for younger lawyers with the ACLU staff.
In an effort to ensure that lawyers throughout the field can join and benefit from the CLF, we offer tiered membership contributions:
For more than 60 years locally, and nearly 100 years nationally, the ACLU of Indiana has been at the center of protecting the constitutional rights of all people. In addition to our legal work, we strive to educate the public and promote awareness about the Constitution's role in our society. Our sponsors' investment in our work ensures that we will continue to guard against government encroachment on individual freedom—now and into the future.
From the bottom of our hearts, we thank all individuals and organizations who make civil liberties a priority.

Getting people to your event is just as important as planning the program. Social media is effective for announcing your event to a wide audience, but it's not always the best way to get an accurate head count of who will actually attend. When hosting a small event for a group of friends and neighbors, we strongly recommend you consider sending personal e-mails and making follow-up phone calls. Mailed invitations also work well. However you decide to make your invitation, be sure to include the "important details" listed above.
