Indiana Tech Law School

Basic Information

Before announcing its 2017 closure, Indiana Tech Law School was the newest law school in the country, having welcomed its charter class in 2013. It received provisional ABA accreditation in March 2016. 

However, the school will close June 30, 2017. It lost nearly $20 million in its four years in operation, and just two students from its first class of graduates passed the state's bar exam. "Low demand for legal degrees, much higher levels of competition for students, and the associated impact on the number of students we projected to attract over the coming years drove this decision," the school said.


For a student looking to stand out, Indiana Tech might be the place to do it. With small class sizes and an evolving curriculum, students have plenty of opportunities — each person in the charter class, for example, had a summer job or externship this year.

According to Associate Director of Admissions Crystal Ridgley, small class sizes will be a permanent fixture at the law school moving forward.

“Employers are looking for experience, and we’re helping our students graduate ready for the job market.” Ridgley said. “What we offer is an intimate setting and truly individualized attention, with professors who seek out students who might be struggling and offer support.”

The school’s current clinical offerings include an immigration clinic and a trial court clinic, and students can choose to concentrate in four different areas, including Intellectual Property/Technology Law and Transactional Law.

So far, Ridgley said, the school has focused on concentrations and skills that have a national impact, but moving forward, the school is considering an agriculture or environmental law program to suit the needs of the region.

It is one of the better values in the region, with tuition at only $29,500.
