The Fort Wayne Board of Zoning Appeals has unanimously approved Indiana Tech’s plans to build a new law school on its campus in the northeastern Indiana city.

The Fort Wayne Journal Gazette reported that the project, which had been approved by the city’s plan commission Monday, needed approval from the zoning appeals board to build the school on land with a residential and commercial zoning.

The 70,000 square-foot building will be located on the school’s main campus in Fort Wayne. The law school intends to open in fall 2013 with 100 students, eventually reaching a total enrollment of 360 students. A groundbreaking is scheduled for May, according to the school’s website.

The law school hired its assistant dean of admission, Jessica Anderson, in March. According to a timeline posted online by the school, it intends to spend the fall visiting area colleges and university pre-law fairs to promote the law school. In September, the admission application will be available with admission decisions complete by November.

Tuition for the full-time school is projected to be nearly $30,000. The school anticipates receiving provisional American Bar Association accreditation in the spring of 2015.
