The faculty and administration at Indiana Law help international students adjust to life and their studies. The Graduate Legal Studies Office employs three full-time staff members dedicated to supporting international graduate students as they adapt to life at the university and in Bloomington.
Three courses are offered during the summer before classes begin for students who want to get a head start on their legal education—or just hone their English language skills in the United States while becoming acclimated to living in Bloomington:
The IU Office of International Services (OIS) provides a wide variety of services that enable Indiana University’s international students to achieve their academic, social, and career goals. The OIS staff assists current international students with visa documentation issues and requirements, work authorization, ongoing orientation, enrollment status verification, financial aid opportunities, cultural programs, and more.
The Leo R. Dowling International Center serves as a community center for international students and scholars and their families. The center also provides opportunities for students and their families to study English while in Bloomington. For more information on studying English in Bloomington, see the Hoosier Guide.
IU has many international student organizations that may be a useful resource as you prepare to come to Bloomington. You can e-mail questions about attending IU and living in Bloomington to students from your home country.
Together with the Graduate Legal Studies Office, the School of Law’s Office of Career and Professional Development conducts a regular series of workshops on career research strategies, resume and letter writing, bar exams, interviewing skills, and other related topics. In addition, the Office of Career and Professional Development provides a variety of job-search resource materials.
Each year, Graduate Legal Studies students participate in the New York University International Student Interview Program (ISIP). This program brings employers (ranging from multinational firms such as Baker & McKenzie to the United Nations and the World Bank) to New York City to conduct interviews with our LLM, MCL, and SJD students.
Indiana Law has more than 30 active student organizations in addition to Indiana University groups for nearly every nationality. Our international students can join Law School organizations including:
