Back to TopCommentsE-mailPrintBookmark and Share

An annual report ranking the nation's law schools put Indiana's programs much in the same position as they were last year in terms of tuition and enrollment.

U.S. News & World Report's annual listings of graduate schools used data from the fall 2009 and early 2010 semesters to come with the rankings, which are available today.

- University of Notre Dame Law School moved up one notch to 22, improving from the overall 23 ranking last year. With an enrollment listed as 548 full-time students, the school listed a $39,320 annual tuition.

- Indiana University Maurer School of Law - Bloomington earned a 27 ranking, down from 23 last year. The school had 620 full-time students with a $24,891 tuition for full-time students from Indiana, and $40,691 for out-of-state students.

- Indiana University School of Law - Indianapolis earned a ranking of 86, improving from 87 a year earlier. Enrollment came in at 625 full-time students with tuition being $18,163 and $38,478 for in-state and out-of-state students respectively.

- Valparaiso University School of Law, with a $35,230 yearly tuition and 541 full-time students, ranked as a Tier 4 school as it has consistently in past years.

The overall scores used for rankings are based on a weighted average of 12 measures, including median LSAT scores, acceptance rates, employment rates for graduates, bar passage rates, and student-faculty ratio. To be listed, law schools must be accredited and fully approved by the American Bar Association and draw a majority of its students from the U.S.

  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.
