The law school is being started by Mark Montefiori, a businessman with 13 years of experience in higher education. It's still early in the planning stages, but the goal is for the school to have an emphasis on teaching business people about the law and offer part-time and full-time tracks for students.
The meeting is for the purpose of presenting the plan to individuals who may be interested in helping with the startup as a board member, director, or in some other support capacity. Montefiori emphasized the meeting is not for recruiting students. The school can't do that until it receives the proper state and American Bar Association approvals.
To register for the information session, e-mail full name and daytime phone number to Montefiori at firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject "Registering for the free Public Information Session."
More information about the school is available at http://abrahamclarklaw.com. The Web site also includes positions that would be available if the school gets the proper funding and accreditations.
Currently, Indianapolis only has one law school, Indiana University School of Law - Indianapolis. It is the largest city in the United States with only one law school. Statewide, there are three other law schools: Indiana University School of Law - Bloomington, University of Notre Dame Law School, and Valparaiso University School of Law. Two other law schools have been proposed in recent years: one at Indiana State University in Terre Haute and another in Ft. Wayne.
