Proposed law school info session Wednesday

Back to TopCommentsE-mailPrintBookmark and Share
There will be an information session July 11 for those interested in the Abraham Clark School of Law, a for-profit school proposed for Indianapolis. The session will begin at 6 p.m. at Springhill Suites, 11855 N. Meridian St., Carmel.

The law school is being started by Mark Montefiori, a businessman with 13 years of experience in higher education. It's still early in the planning stages, but the goal is for the school to have an emphasis on teaching business people about the law and offer part-time and full-time tracks for students.

The meeting is for the purpose of presenting the plan to individuals who may be interested in helping with the startup as a board member, director, or in some other support capacity. Montefiori emphasized the meeting is not for recruiting students. The school can't do that until it receives the proper state and American Bar Association approvals.

To register for the information session, e-mail full name and daytime phone number to Montefiori at abrahamclarklaw@sbcglobal.net with the subject "Registering for the free Public Information Session."

More information about the school is available at http://abrahamclarklaw.com. The Web site also includes positions that would be available if the school gets the proper funding and accreditations.

Currently, Indianapolis only has one law school, Indiana University School of Law - Indianapolis. It is the largest city in the United States with only one law school. Statewide, there are three other law schools: Indiana University School of Law - Bloomington, University of Notre Dame Law School, and Valparaiso University School of Law. Two other law schools have been proposed in recent years: one at Indiana State University in Terre Haute and another in Ft. Wayne.

  1. What is this, the Ind Supreme Court thinking that there is a separation of powers and limited enumerated powers as delegated by a dusty old document? Such eighteen century thinking, so rare and unwanted by the elites in this modern age. Dictate to us, dictate over us, the massess are chanting! George Soros agrees. Time to change with times Ind Supreme Court, says all President Snows. Rule by executive decree is the new black.

  2. I made the same argument before a commission of the Indiana Supreme Court and then to the fedeal district and federal appellate courts. Fell flat. So very glad to read that some judges still beleive that evidentiary foundations matter.

  3. KUDOS to the Indiana Supreme Court for realizing that some bureacracies need to go to the stake. Recall what RWR said: "No government ever voluntarily reduces itself in size. Government programs, once launched, never disappear. Actually, a government bureau is the nearest thing to eternal life we'll ever see on this earth!" NOW ... what next to this rare and inspiring chopping block? Well, the Commission on Gender and Race (but not religion!?!) is way overdue. And some other Board's could be cut with a positive for State and the reputation of the Indiana judiciary.

  4. During a visit where an informant with police wears audio and video, does the video necessary have to show hand to hand transaction of money and narcotics?

  5. I will agree with that as soon as law schools stop lying to prospective students about salaries and employment opportunities in the legal profession. There is no defense to the fraudulent numbers first year salaries they post to mislead people into going to law school.
