Record number of schools participate in IU Law Day

Indiana University Bloomington welcomed about 575 students to the annual Law Day on Oct. 24. The event gives I.U. students and alumni the opportunity to meet with recruiters from law schools around the country and learn about admission requirements.

A record 126 law schools participated in the Law Day, up from 121 schools in 2011. Hosted by the I.U. Health Professions and Prelaw Center in partnership with the Midwest Association of Prelaw Advisors, the fair was held from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. in the Indiana Memorial Union Tree Suites.

The day began with a panel discussion and question-and-answer session with law school assistant deans, including Frank Motley, assistant dean of admission, Indiana University Maurer School of Law.

The Law School Admission Council estimates about 4,000 prelaw students are enrolled at I.U. Bloomington, representing more than 53 majors.

Robert H. McKinney was recognized at the Law School Naming Ceremony for his generous gift of $24 million. McKinney Dean Gary Roberts, I.U. President Michael A. McRobbie, I.U. Foundation President Emeritus Eugene R. Tempel and IUPUI Chancellor Charles R. Bantz were among the university officials at the event.

During the ceremony a bust of McKinney, created by sculptor James Beck of the IUPUI Office of Visual Media, was unveiled.

McKinney began law school in Indianapolis, but finished at I.U. Bloomington in 1951 before being recalled to active duty by the U.S. Navy. Returning to Indianapolis in 1953, he began working for McHale Cook & Welch. Ten years later, he joined Cook Bose Buchanan & Evans which was renamed Bose Buchanan McKinney & Evans.

  1. Well, maybe it's because they are unelected, and, they have a tendency to strike down laws by elected officials from all over the country. When you have been taught that "Democracy" is something almost sacred, then, you will have a tendency to frown on such imperious conduct. Lawyers get acculturated in law school into thinking that this is the very essence of high minded government, but to people who are more heavily than King George ever did, they may not like it. Thanks for the information.

  2. I pd for a bankruptcy years ago with Mr Stiles and just this week received a garnishment from my pay! He never filed it even though he told me he would! Don't let this guy practice law ever again!!!

  3. Excellent initiative on the part of the AG. Thankfully someone takes action against predators taking advantage of people who have already been through the wringer. Well done!

  4. Conour will never turn these funds over to his defrauded clients. He tearfully told the court, and his daughters dutifully pledged in interviews, that his first priority is to repay every dime of the money he stole from his clients. Judge Young bought it, much to the chagrin of Conour’s victims. Why would Conour need the $2,262 anyway? Taxpayers are now supporting him, paying for his housing, utilities, food, healthcare, and clothing. If Conour puts the money anywhere but in the restitution fund, he’s proved, once again, what a con artist he continues to be and that he has never had any intention of repaying his clients. Judge Young will be proven wrong... again; Conour has no remorse and the Judge is one of the many conned.

  5. Pass Legislation to require guilty defendants to pay for the costs of lab work, etc as part of court costs...
