IU Maurer to begin offering scholarships to Wabash College grads

Back to TopCommentsE-mailPrintBookmark and Share

Indiana University Maurer School of Law and Wabash College have entered into an agreement establishing a scholarship and mentorship program for Wabash students interested in going to law school.

The Wabash Law Scholars Program will offer at least two Wabash College graduates admitted to the law school a scholarship amount to nearly 50 percent of annual tuition. The students will also have access to a formal mentoring program.

Maurer announced a similar agreement with Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology in March.

The scholarships will reduce the cost of law school tuition for the selected Wabash and Rose-Hulman grads anywhere from $45,000 to $75,000 over three years, depending on the student’s residency and other factors.

"A liberal arts degree from a school like Wabash is excellent preparation for the study and practice of law," said Austen L. Parrish, dean and the James H. Rudy Professor of Law at the Maurer School of Law. "Many of our most distinguished alumni are also Wabash graduates, and we are delighted to join forces with this outstanding school."

Wabash College and Rose-Hulman will nominate current students or alumni for the program beginning with the law school’s fall 2014 entering class.

  1. Indianapolis Bar Association President John Trimble and I are on the same page, but it is a very large page with plenty of room for others to join us. As my final Res Gestae article will express in more detail in a few days, the Great Recession hastened a fundamental and permanent sea change for the global legal service profession. Every state bar is facing the same existential questions that thrust the medical profession into national healthcare reform debates. The bench, bar, and law schools must comprehensively reconsider how we define the practice of law and what it means to access justice. If the three principals of the legal service profession do not recast the vision of their roles and responsibilities soon, the marketplace will dictate those roles and responsibilities without regard for the public interests that the legal profession professes to serve.

  2. I have met some highly placed bureaucrats who vehemently disagree, Mr. Smith. This is not your father's time in America. Some ideas are just too politically incorrect too allow spoken, says those who watch over us for the good of their concept of order.

  3. Lets talk about this without forgetting that Lawyers, too, have FREEDOM OF SPEECH AND ASSOCIATION

  4. Baer filed with the U.S. Court of Appeals Seventh Circuit on April 30 2015. When will this be decided? How many more appeals does this guy have? Unbelievable this is dragging on like this.

  5. They ruled there is no absolute right to keep a license, whether it be for a lifetime or a short period of time. So with that being said, this state taught me at the age of 15 how to obtain that license. I am actually doing something that I was taught to do, I'm not breaking the law breaking the rules and according to the Interstate Compact the National Interstate Compact...driving while suspended is a minor offense. So, do with that what you will..Indiana sucks when it comes to the driving laws, they really and truly need to reevaluate their priorities and honestly put the good of the community first... I mean, what's more important the pedophile drug dealer or wasting time and money to keep us off the streets?
