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. Being dedicated to a genre keeps it alive until the masses catch up to the "trend." Kent and Bill are keepin' it LIVE!! Thank you gentlemen..you know your JAZZ.

  2. Hemp has very little THC which is needed to kill cancer cells! Growing cannabis plants for THC inside a hemp field will not work...where is the fear? From not really knowing about Cannabis and Hemp or just not listening to the people teaching you through testimonies and packets of info over the last few years! Wake up Hoosier law makers!

  3. If our State Government would sue for their rights to grow HEMP like Kentucky did we would not have these issues. AND for your INFORMATION many medical items are also made from HEMP. FOOD, FUEL,FIBER,TEXTILES and MEDICINE are all uses for this plant. South Bend was built on Hemp. Our states antiquated fear of cannabis is embarrassing on the world stage. We really need to lead the way rather than follow. Some day.. we will have freedom in Indiana. And I for one will continue to educate the good folks of this state to the beauty and wonder of this magnificent plant.

  4. Put aside all the marijuana concerns, we are talking about food and fiber uses here. The federal impediments to hemp cultivation are totally ridiculous. Preposterous. Biggest hemp cultivators are China and Europe. We get most of ours from Canada. Hemp is as versatile as any crop ever including corn and soy. It's good the governor laid the way for this, regrettable the buffoons in DC stand in the way. A statutory relic of the failed "war on drugs"

  5. Cannabis is GOOD for our PEOPLE and GOOD for our STATE... 78% would like to see legal access to the product line for better Hoosier Heath. There is a 25% drop in PAIN KILLER Overdoses in states where CANNABIS is legal.
