IU Maurer partners with out-of-state schools for students

Indiana University Maurer School of Law is expanding its partnership program to further its goal of ensuring the Bloomington institution enrolls top law students.

The law school has established scholarships and mentoring programs with Knox College in Galesburg, Ill., and Georgia Institute of Technology in Atlanta. Each year, IU Maurer will offer at least two Knox College and Georgia Tech graduates scholarships equaling about 50 percent of the annual tuition.

Over three years, the scholarships will reduce the cost of law school for each student by $45,000 to $75,000.

The partnership is similar to the programs IU Maurer has created with Indiana’s Wabash College and Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology. In an interview with the Indiana Lawyer, IU Maurer Dean Austen Parrish said the goal of these programs was to recruit bright undergraduates to come to Bloomington to pursue a law degree.

Like the scholarship at Rose-Hulman, recipients from Georgia Tech will be eligible to serve as research assistants in IU Maurer’s Center for Intellectual Property Research.

“…we look forward to welcoming Georgia Tech’s outstanding engineering graduates to our intellectual property law program,” Parrish said. “In a world where technology and innovation touches every aspect of our daily lives, Georgia Tech students are particularly well equipped for success as law students.”

Gary May, dean of the College of Engineering at Georgia Tech, called the program a “wonderful opportunity” for students. He said scholarship recipients will obtain the knowledge to handle the intellectual property that engineers produce.

At Knox College, Parrish credited the school’s thriving academics and intellectual student body with making students well-prepared to pursue a law degree.

Laura Behling, vice president for academic affairs and dean of Knox College, pointed to the school’s strong ties to the legal profession.

“Knox graduates have gone on to become some of the nation’s leading legal experts, arguing cases in front of the Supreme Court, advising presidents, and leading national and international law firms,” she said. “We are excited to enter into this agreement with the Indiana University Maurer School of Law and look forward to providing Knox students and alumni with this opportunity to attend one of the nation’s leading law schools.”

  1. November, 2014, I was charged with OWI/Endangering a person. I was not given a Breathalyzer test and the arresting officer did not believe that alcohol was in any way involved. I was self-overmedicated with prescription medications. I was taken to local hospital for blood draw to be sent to State Tox Lab. My attorney gave me a cookie-cutter plea which amounts to an ALCOHOL-related charge. Totally unacceptable!! HOW can I get my TOX report from the state lab???

  2. My mother got temporary guardianship of my children in 2012. my husband and I got divorced 2015 the judge ordered me to have full custody of all my children. Does this mean the temporary guardianship is over? I'm confused because my divorce papers say I have custody and he gets visits and i get to claim the kids every year on my taxes. So just wondered since I have in black and white that I have custody if I can go get my kids from my moms and not go to jail?

  3. Someone off their meds? C'mon John, it is called the politics of Empire. Get with the program, will ya? How can we build one world under secularist ideals without breaking a few eggs? Of course, once it is fully built, is the American public who will feel the deadly grip of the velvet glove. One cannot lay down with dogs without getting fleas. The cup of wrath is nearly full, John Smith, nearly full. Oops, there I go, almost sounding as alarmist as Smith. Guess he and I both need to listen to this again: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CRnQ65J02XA

  4. Charles Rice was one of the greatest of the so-called great generation in America. I was privileged to count him among my mentors. He stood firm for Christ and Christ's Church in the Spirit of Thomas More, always quick to be a good servant of the King, but always God's first. I had Rice come speak to 700 in Fort Wayne as Obama took office. Rice was concerned that this rise of aggressive secularism and militant Islam were dual threats to Christendom,er, please forgive, I meant to say "Western Civilization". RIP Charlie. You are safe at home.

  5. It's a big fat black mark against the US that they radicalized a lot of these Afghan jihadis in the 80s to fight the soviets and then when they predictably got around to biting the hand that fed them, the US had to invade their homelands, install a bunch of corrupt drug kingpins and kleptocrats, take these guys and torture the hell out of them. Why for example did the US have to sodomize them? Dubya said "they hate us for our freedoms!" Here, try some of that freedom whether you like it or not!!! Now they got even more reasons to hate us-- lets just keep bombing the crap out of their populations, installing more puppet regimes, arming one faction against another, etc etc etc.... the US is becoming a monster. No wonder they hate us. Here's my modest recommendation. How about we follow "Just War" theory in the future. St Augustine had it right. How about we treat these obvious prisoners of war according to the Geneva convention instead of torturing them in sadistic and perverted ways.
