Mission Statement

A New Kind of Law School

Indiana Tech Law School exists to prepare students for success in law, leadership and life. To that end, the Law School community is committed to blending theory and practice from the very first semester; infusing the curriculum with ethics and professionalism education; and providing abundant opportunities to apply real world lawyering skills for everyone in the student body.

The Law School will supplement traditional classroom instruction with experiential and collaborative learning. Every student will have a judge or lawyer mentor from the start of law school, and professors will include members of the bench and practicing bar, in meaningful ways, in every required course and in many of the electives offered each semester. Every student will also have the opportunity in the second and third years of study to refine their skills development by participating in a legal clinic or externship course and, in the third year, by completing a 40-hour-per-week Semester-in-Practice capstone practicum.
