Indiana Law faculty are renowned for their passion for teaching and for being caring role models and supportive mentors. In fact, many of them have received Indiana University’s highest teaching honors. Their classroom discussions are rigorous and thorough, and they have a gift for challenging your old ways of thinking as never before. As part of our community, you will be invited — and expected — to join our esteemed professors in fostering the Law School’s vibrant intellectual life. Our teachers are scholars, too. They are graduates of the nation’s finest law schools — including this one — and their research informs and shapes contemporary legal discourse, from cybersecurity and constitutional reform to patent law and conservation. They include an award-winning documentary filmmaker, acclaimed authors, Fulbright Scholars, a Carnegie Fellow, two US Supreme Court clerks, Wall Street lawyers, accomplished litigators, and members of the Council on Foreign Relations, the American Law Institute, and the American Society of International Law. Our faculty’s research makes them some of the most sought-after experts and influential legal thinkers in the world, which is why we ranked ninth among all US law schools for downloads of faculty research on the Social Science Research Network website in 2017-18.

passionate teachers, influential scholars

In addition, the Law School attracts impressive adjunct faculty and leading scholars to serve as guest lecturers. Every year we host numerous scholarly conferences that enrich the intellectual life of the Law School. As an upper-division student, you will be able to work alongside our faculty as an assistant, whether in one of the research centers they direct, or aiding them with their independent scholarship. Either way, you will gain additional skills and knowledge from our talented community of teacher-scholars.

Indiana Law’s research centers The Center for Constitutional Democracy helps people in post-conflict societies build legal institutions that will allow them to live together in peace, justice, and democracy. It is one of the only centers in the world to do active constitutional design consulting. The Milt and Judi Stewart Center on the Global Legal Profession is focused on the unprecedented challenges lawyers are facing around the world and developing research and training materials to assist current and future attorneys in their understanding of international legal systems. The Center for Intellectual Property Research trains students who are passionate about innovation and creativity and who seek an intensive experience in IP law — patent, trademark and unfair competition, copyright, design, and information policy. The Center for Law, Society & Culture promotes and disseminates a multidisciplinary understanding of law through scholarship, teaching, and discussion. The Center produces, presents, and coordinates research conducted by exceptional scholars in schools and departments across Indiana University on law and legal problems. — CLOCKWISE FROM TOP RIGHT: KELLEY SCHOOL OF BUSINESS, SCHOOL OF PUBLIC AND ENVIRONMENTAL AFFAIRS, AND SCHOOL OF GLOBAL AND INTERNATIONAL STUDIES
