Indiana Tech Law School uses a holistic approach in reviewing applications for admission. Three members of the faculty, and the assistant dean for admissions, serve on an Admissions Committee and they review every application that is received. Each member of the committee has attended law school and possesses a J.D., so they understand that a successful law student is a well-rounded person with a variety of life experiences. To that end, multiple factors are considered when determining whom to admit to our program.

Conditional Scholarship Retention Policy
The Law School offers academic scholarships to students based on their highest score on the Law School Admission Test. Those scholarships are renewable each year of law school as long as the student maintains a 3.0 GPA. The Law School’s median GPA has not yet been established because students have not taken any exams.

Academic Requirements, Academic Calendar, and Curricular Offerings
In order to graduate from Indiana Tech Law School, students must successfully complete 90 credit hours of course work. The required first-year curriculum constitutes 30 credits. In the final two years, students must also successfully complete a required course in ethics called “Professional Responsibility,” at least one seminar or other writing course that provides them with a rigorous writing experience, and a skills course that teaches some of the basic skills that are used by attorneys in the profession.
Students who wish to focus their final two years in a particular area of the law may enroll in one of four concentrations; these are specially designed, sequenced curricula within the overall Law School curriculum. Students enrolled in a concentration must complete 10 credits of required course work and 6 credits of electives within the concentration. In addition, the students in each concentration must enroll in either a legal clinic or a 40-hour-per-week Semester-in-Practice externship for one semester.
Currently, there are four concentrations: advocacy/dispute resolution, intellectual property/technology law, global law and leadership, and transactional law. Students who complete the requirements for a Concentration will have that accomplishment noted on their official transcripts.
Please visit the Law School academic calendar for the most up-to-date information for the academic year.
Currently, the Law School curriculum is limited to first-year subjects only. Upper-level electives and required courses will be posted as those courses are approved by the faculty. In the first year students are required to complete the following subjects:
|Civil Procedure||4||Constitutional Law||3|
|Lawyering Skills||3||Lawyering Skills||2|
Transfer of Credit Policy
Since Indiana Tech Law School will have only first-year students in its student body in the fall of 2013, the faculty has yet to adopt a policy regarding the transfer of credit from other law schools. However, all law students may enroll in graduate-level courses at Indiana Tech and up to 6 credits of course work will be applied toward a law student’s graduation requirements.
