A new program established by Indiana University Maurer School of Law and Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology will allow select Rose-Hulman graduates to study at the IU law school at a reduced tuition rate.

The Rose-Hulman Intellectual Property Law Scholars Program will offer at least two Rose-Hulman graduates admitted to the law school a scholarship amounting to 50 percent of annual tuition, plus access to a formal mentoring program and a research assistant position at the Center for Intellectual Property Research at IU.

According to a release from the law school, the scholarship will lower the cost of law school over three years by approximately $45,000 to $75,000, depending on the student’s residency and other factors.

“Intellectual property law is one of the fastest-growing areas of the profession,” said Austen L. Parrish, dean and James H. Rudy Professor of Law at the IU Maurer School of Law. “We have one of the strongest intellectual property law programs in the nation and are delighted to join forces with one of the country’s leading engineering schools in finding pathways for talented students to advance their professional interests."

"The Rose-Hulman Intellectual Property Law Scholars Program will create outstanding opportunities for students to gain a technical and legal education that will enable them to make significant contributions to an economy driven by technological innovation,” said Richard E. Stamper, dean of faculty and professor of engineering management and mechanical engineering.

Rose-Hulman will nominate current students or alumni for the program beginning with the class entering in the fall of 2014.

  1. I'm not sure what's more depressing: the fact that people would pay $35,000 per year to attend an unaccredited law school, or the fact that the same people "are hanging in there and willing to follow the dean’s lead in going forward" after the same school fails to gain accreditation, rendering their $70,000 and counting education worthless. Maybe it's a good thing these people can't sit for the bar.

  2. Such is not uncommon on law school startups. Students and faculty should tap Bruce Green, city attorney of Lufkin, Texas. He led a group of studnets and faculty and sued the ABA as a law student. He knows the ropes, has advised other law school startups. Very astute and principled attorney of unpopular clients, at least in his past, before Lufkin tapped him to run their show.

  3. Not that having the appellate records on Odyssey won't be welcome or useful, but I would rather they first bring in the stray counties that aren't yet connected on the trial court level.

  4. Aristotle said 350 bc: "The most hated sort, and with the greatest reason, is usury, which makes a gain out of money itself, and not from the natural object of it. For money was intended to be used in exchange, but not to increase at interest. And this term interest, which means the birth of money from money, is applied to the breeding of money because the offspring resembles the parent. Wherefore of an modes of getting wealth this is the most unnatural.

  5. Oh yes, lifetime tenure. The Founders gave that to the federal judges .... at that time no federal district courts existed .... so we are talking the Supreme Court justices only in context ....so that they could rule against traditional marriage and for the other pet projects of the sixties generation. Right. Hmmmm, but I must admit, there is something from that time frame that seems to recommend itself in this context ..... on yes, from a document the Founders penned in 1776: " He has refused his Assent to Laws, the most wholesome and necessary for the public good."
