Indiana University Maurer School of Law (also known as IU Law or Indiana Law) is today's Law School Spotlight. From LSAC's Official Guide to ABA-Approved Law Schools:
The Indiana University Maurer School of Law—Bloomington provides the highest quality legal education in a relaxed, collegial setting. Founded in 1842, the law school is located on the beautifully wooded campus of one of the nation's largest teaching and research universities. The presence of the university, including the world-famous Jacobs School of Music, offers students cultural opportunities available in few urban areas, while retaining the advantages of a small university town. With a student body of fewer than 675 students, drawn from more than 200 undergraduate schools in the United States and abroad, the law school is small enough to retain its distinctive sense of community and collegiality, while large enough to facilitate a stimulating, cosmopolitan environment. The school is a charter member of the Association of American Law Schools (AALS) and is approved by the American Bar Association (ABA).
