Indiana Tech plans to open law school in 2013

Back to TopCommentsE-mailPrintBookmark and Share

Indiana may soon have a fifth law school. Indiana Tech’s Board of Trustees voted May 13 to move forward with establishing a law school in Fort Wayne.

The board voted unanimously to create a law school, citing Indiana Tech’s academic strengths; that Indiana is underserved in terms of the numbers of lawyers relative to Indiana’s population and economic activity; and that around half of Indiana residents pursuing a law degree go to out-of-state schools approved by the American Bar Association, according to a release on the school’s website.

“The establishment of the Indiana Tech school of law is a tremendously significant development not just for this university but for the community of Fort Wayne and the state of Indiana,” President Arthur E. Snyder said. “We have given this decision careful research and consideration, and we believe we can develop a school that will attract and retain talented individuals who will contribute to our region’s economic development.”

The school is now searching for a dean to lead economic development of the academic program and is pursuing accreditation by the ABA. Its goal is to open Indiana Tech law school in the fall of 2013 with 100 first-year students.

  • Is it April's Fools Day
    Rather than be totally negative and list the top 100 reason's why Indiana does not need a new lawschool I am going to let the free market forces speak for themselves. I am guessing no lawyer (Save one's that command six figure academic salaries) was involved in this decision.
