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. Can I get this form on line,if not where can I obtain one. I am eligible.

  2. What a fine example of the best of the Hoosier tradition! How sad that the AP has to include partisan snark in the obit for this great American patriot and adventurer.

  3. Why are all these lawyers yakking to the media about pending matters? Trial by media? What the devil happened to not making extrajudicial statements? The system is falling apart.

  4. It is a sad story indeed as this couple has been only in survival mode, NOT found guilty with Ponzi, shaken down for 5 years and pursued by prosecution that has been ignited by a civil suit with very deep pockets wrenched in their bitterness...It has been said that many of us are breaking an average of 300 federal laws a day without even knowing it. Structuring laws, & civilForfeiture laws are among the scariest that need to be restructured or repealed . These laws were initially created for drug Lords and laundering money and now reach over that line. Here you have a couple that took out their own money, not drug money, not laundering. Yes...Many upset that they lost money...but how much did they make before it all fell apart? No one ask that question? A civil suit against Williams was awarded because he has no more money to fight...they pushed for a break in order...they took all his belongings...even underwear, shoes and clothes? who does that? What allows that? Maybe if you had the picture of him purchasing a jacket at the Goodwill just to go to court the next day...his enemy may be satisfied? But not likely...bitterness is a master. For happy ending lovers, you will be happy to know they have a faith that has changed their world and a solid love that many of us can only dream about. They will spend their time in federal jail for taking their money from their account, but at the end of the day they have loyal friends, a true love and a hope of a new life in time...and none of that can be bought or taken That is the real story.

  5. Could be his email did something especially heinous, really over the top like questioning Ind S.Ct. officials or accusing JLAP of being the political correctness police.
