The webinar focus was on budget planning for depositions, as well as technology and techniques for conducting legal depositions in this remote COVID-19 environment. Some of the nation’s best trial lawyers contributed their expertise, “meeting with” and mentoring new caucus members.

Academy students shine with achieve 3000, thanks to Ramey & Hailey gift

When Richard Hailey and law partner Mary Beth Ramey funded the Achieve 3000® cloud-based literacy program as their gift to the Andrew J. Brown Academy students, they did so out of the belief that the ability to read, comprehend, apply, and communicate information would be the key to young scholars’ future success.

And, based on recently released Lexile® scores, those scholars have embarked on that success track early on. (Lexile measures are one of the most-researched reading measures available today, with more than half of the country’s K–12 students — that’s over 35 million U.S. students from all 50 states — receiving Lexile measures every year.)

After implementing the Achieve 3000® program, the Andrew J. Brown Academy has increased its Lexile scores by an average of 63 Lexile over the course of just one year, equivalent to an entire grade level! The third grade saw a gain of 97 Lexile, the fifth grade a gain of 85 Lexile.

Way to go, Andrew J. Brown Academicians!

Richard Hailey honored at the Andrew J. Brown Academy awards

Hollywood isn’t the only setting for Academy Awards. Each year at the Andrew J. Brown Academy, an event is held to honor scholars and community leaders. At the December 2019 red carpet, semi-formal attire event, honor roll students and those with perfect attendance were celebrated, and scholars showcased their personal style in a fashion show.

Founded in 2003, the Andrew J. Brown Academy was the first K-8 tuition-free public charter school to open in Indiana. With fully a third of the student body categorized as ESL (English as a Second Language), the school has achieved ratings higher than those of Indianapolis Public Schools in surrounding areas.

Attorney Richard Hailey was the community leader honored at this year’s event. As the retired president of the Andrew J. Brown Academy board, Mr. Hailey has funded the Achieve 3000® cloud-based literacy program that has been so instrumental in scholars’ success.

Both Richard Hailey and law partner Mary Beth Ramey have been proud to volunteer their time, energy, and contributions to help the Andrew J. Brown Academy transform the lives of students and enrich the community in Indianapolis.

Ramey & Hailey – a forward look at the advanced deposition college

As Richard Hailey prepares to once again serve on the faculty of the American Association for Justice/Education’s annual Deposition College in January, he knows this is no same-old, same-old set of Continuing Legal Education courses. The program has been designed to provide an in-depth, cutting edge approach.

For example, advances in neuroscience are now being applied to testimony in the courtroom, and ”neurolaw” is one of several new technologies to be covered in this year’s curriculum, along with decision-making science, and the role of storytelling.

Both Mary Beth Ramey and Richard Hailey have been involved with the Deposition College since its inception. Hailey is looking forward to lecturing at a number of the courses and to serving as a mentor to young lawyers at the daily individualized case study workshop sessions.

The Advanced Depositions College will take place at the Le Meridian Hotel in New Orleans, Louisiana, from Friday January 17-20
