Jessica Van Dalen Receives Pro Bono Publico Award from Indiana Bar Foundation

Jessica Van Dalen has been presented with the Pro Bono Publico award by the Indiana Bar Foundation. This award recognizes an attorney who has dedicated significant time to ensure that legal services are available to persons who otherwise could not afford them, in an effort to promote a more effective delivery of legal services to the public.

“Every year, the Foundation honors dedicated public servants and leading lawyers from across the state who have demonstrated a solid commitment to improving our communities and solving the most complex problems we face,” said Kenneth Allen, IBF president. “I’ve never seen a more impressive and deserving group than those selected in 2017. Congratulations to all!”

Jessica Van Dalen helps solo inventors, small businesses, and start-up companies obtain patent protection on their inventions. The patent system can be expensive and cost-prohibitive for many starting companies. Van Dalen has been involved with the IU Maurer School of Law IP Clinic since its inception, helping both the students involved with the IP Clinic gain experience and the clients seeking patent protection to launch their businesses. Through the IP Clinic and the Patent Connect for Hoosiers program, she has donated as much as 100 hours of pro bono service in one year.

The Indiana Bar Foundation’s mission is to strengthen appreciation for the rule of law and civic education for all Hoosiers. The Foundation is a nonprofit that educates tomorrow’s leaders, expands civil justice and aids the legal profession.
