Overview: The IU Robert H. McKinney School of Law prepares students for a wide range of diverse and exciting careers. From practicing law to managing corporations, graduates of the law school excel not only in Indiana, but also across the country and around the world. Law school alumni have served in the highest offices in government, including the U.S. Vice Presidency, the Senate, and the House of Representatives.
The Indianapolis legal and business communities offer opportunities for connections that no other law school in the state can provide. Many of the schools adjunct professors come from some of the most prestigious law firms in the state. Additionally, an attorney-student mentor program allows students to meet a variety of area attorneys, judges, and business and government leaders in an informal setting.
Internships are available in a vast array of institutions, including banks, corporations, and government offices. Many internships also are available with local, state, and federal courts. Because of its location in an urban setting, the school is able to offer clinical programs designed to complement traditional legal education with experience beyond the classroom. With faculty supervision, students represent real clients in actual cases before Indiana courts through the Criminal Defense, Civil Practice, and Disability Clinics.
