Who we are

Located in a beautifully wooded setting in Bloomington, a classic college town, the IU campus is consistently ranked among the most beautiful in the nation. Our heritage is local, but our presence is global: More than 65% of our alumni find jobs outside Indiana.

Nota bene

Indiana University has two law schools, neither of which is affiliated with the other. Ours — the Maurer School of Law — is located in Bloomington on the Indiana University main campus. The Robert H. McKinney School of Law is located on the Indiana University Purdue University Indianapolis (IUPUI) campus. The schools have separate faculty, staff, students, and admissions criteria. You must apply to each school individually.
