New law school receives big donation

Thanks to an out-of-state donor, Indiana Tech Law School’s library collection just got a lot bigger – eight tractor-trailers bigger.

The law school announced Wednesday that the anonymous businessperson donated the books and microfiche to Indiana Tech with the hopes it would be put to good use. The donor acquired the collection from a law school that wasn’t able to earn ABA accreditation, according to Indiana Tech.

Dean Peter Alexander says the books are being stored in eight tractor-trailers right now and that everything is in good condition. The microfiche collection has been stored in a climate-controlled area.

The school already has the microfiche and expects to get the books in June. Indiana Tech plans on acknowledging the donor’s generosity in “whatever way is acceptable to the law school’s new patron,” the school said.

Indiana Tech Law School, Indiana’s 5th law school, is set to open in August 2013 with its first class.
