Another information session has been scheduled for the Abraham Clark School of Law, a proposed new law school in Indianapolis. The meeting, which is open to the public, is Aug. 9 at 6:30 p.m. at Springhill Suites in Carmel, 11855 N. Meridian St.
Directions to the meeting and information about the law school are available on the proposed law school’s Web site, www.abrahamclarklaw.com.
To participate in this information session, the school’s founder Mark Montefiori requests that attendees send an e-mail with full name and phone number to [email protected] and include a subject line that refers to the meeting.
The information session is intended for those who would like to offer ideas for the proposed school. The last meeting for the proposed school was in July at the same location.
An article about proposed new schools in Indiana was published in the July 25-Aug. 7, 2007, issue of Indiana Lawyer and is available at http://www.theindianalawyer.com/2k7/html/detail_page.asp?content=536.
While deans of other law schools in the state said they are not opposed to the idea of a new law school, they were uncertain that there was a need for a fifth law school in Indiana.
Instead of enrolling the traditional crop of law school students, Montefiori and others at the July information session suggested that this school could serve a different market of law student. Montefiori is a businessman with 13 years of experience in higher education for working adults, including college admissions, recruitment, marketing, and strategic planning.
Currently there are four law schools in Indiana: Indiana University School of Law – Indianapolis, Indiana University School of Law – Bloomington, University of Notre Dame Law School, and Valparaiso University School of Law. The University of St. Francis in Fort Wayne and Indiana State University in Terre Haute have also proposed new law schools in the past two years.
