The 2013 Incoming Class

JD Students: A Diverse and Capable Community

The Maurer School of Law welcomed 204 JD students in the fall of 2013. They bring wide-ranging educational, work, and life experiences to our community.

  • The class comes from 124 undergraduate institutions in 31 states.
  • 41% of the first-year class has postgraduate work experience.
  • Members of the first-year class speak a number of foreign languages, including French, Dutch, Arabic, Lao, Thai, Hindi, and Danish.
  • The class includes a baseball player for the Milwaukee Brewers, a newspaper reporter, a writer for the National Lampoon, a registered nurse, a naval aviation mechanic, and a graphic designer.

Most Maurer students who start here finish here. For example, 218 first-year students matriculated in the fall of 2009. Ninety percent graduated in 2012. There were eight withdrawals and 15 transfers.

Graduate Students: An Impressive Group from around the World

Indiana Law's graduate students are equally impressive. They hail from five continents and 20 countries and include:

  • An arabic poet
  • A belly dancer
  • A cricket team coach
  • A military judge of the Republic of Korea army
  • A police intern in Beijing

One student was in a college rock band named 1905, another studies Chinese calligraphy, and another has an instructors license from the Japanese Snowboarding Association.
