Representatives from 121 law schools will attend Indiana University Bloomington Law Day on Oct. 25, to meet with prospective students and talk about admission procedures and requirements.

The event begins at 9 a.m. in the Whittenberger Auditorium, with a panel discussion and question-and-answer session called, "What REALLY WORKS in a Law School Application," featuring law school deans, including Frank Motley of the Indiana University Maurer School of Law.

From 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., the IU Law School Fair in the Alumni Hall allows students to meet one-on-one with law school representatives. Informational material will be available for students to take home.

"Students at IU Bloomington are incredibly fortunate to be able to take advantage of the fact that more of the nation's finest law schools come to Bloomington than to any other university in the country," said Mac Francis, director of the Health Professions and Prelaw Center. "Other students simply do not have this invaluable opportunity to see what the schools have to offer, to learn about schools they had not considered before and to make that all-important personal connection to the school's representative."

  1. Frankly, it is tragic that you are even considering going to an expensive, unaccredited "law school." It is extremely difficult to get a job with a degree from a real school. If you are going to make the investment of time, money, and tears into law school, it should not be to a place that won't actually enable you to practice law when you graduate.

  2. As a lawyer who grew up in Fort Wayne (but went to a real law school), it is not that hard to find a mentor in the legal community without your school's assistance. One does not need to pay tens of thousands of dollars to go to an unaccredited legal diploma mill to get a mentor. Having a mentor means precisely nothing if you cannot get a job upon graduation, and considering that the legal job market is utterly terrible, these students from Indiana Tech are going to be adrift after graduation.

  3. 700,000 to 800,000 Americans are arrested for marijuana possession each year in the US. Do we need a new justice center if we decriminalize marijuana by having the City Council enact a $100 fine for marijuana possession and have the money go towards road repair?

  4. I am sorry to hear this.

  5. I tried a case in Judge Barker's court many years ago and I recall it vividly as a highlight of my career. I don't get in federal court very often but found myself back there again last Summer. We had both aged a bit but I must say she was just as I had remembered her. Authoritative, organized and yes, human ...with a good sense of humor. I also appreciated that even though we were dealing with difficult criminal cases, she treated my clients with dignity and understanding. My clients certainly respected her. Thanks for this nice article. Congratulations to Judge Barker for reaching another milestone in a remarkable career.
