The IU Maurer School of Law is the national leader in the study of the global legal profession, and we are using this research to transform our curriculum and produce the most prepared, educated and ethical lawyers in the world.
This process begins as soon as students arrive on campus. Our unique first-year curriculum includes a four-hour course on the legal profession, which gives students tools to identify a career path that is best suited for them. Supported by the groundbreaking research of the School's Center on the Global Legal Profession, this course is the only one of its kind in the US because it enables students to evaluate their own interests, abilities and values within the context of their new profession.
Our outstanding faculty are dedicated teachers, with scholarship in dozens of legal disciplines, from intellectual property to income tax; from corporations to constitutional law. Their work is supported by several academic centers, which give students the opportunity for hands-on research in a variety of settings, including intellectual property; cybersecurity; law, society, and culture; and constitutional design. The school also offers numerous joint degree programs with Indiana University’s renowned Kelley School of Business, School of Public and Environmental Affairs, and other affiliates. Every summer, the school’s Stewart Fellows serve externships in India, Brazil, and South Korea, working in law firms, businesses, and non-governmental organizations.
Founded in 1842, the Indiana University Maurer School of Law is located in a beautifully wooded campus in Bloomington, a classic college town – the ideal learning environment for the distinguished attorneys and public servants who complete our programs.
