Aptitude without attitude

This phrase is the hallmark of Indiana Law graduates. They have a hard-working, no-nonsense, can-do mentality. They show up eager to work every morning knowing that the practice of law extends beyond the casebook. They possess not only the critical thinking skills necessary to succeed, but also the strong people skills that are imperative to building relationships that will last for decades.

Why are our graduates able to adjust faster than their peers? Because we prepare them for this moment from their very first day. Groundbreaking research from our Center on the Global Legal Profession shows that good lawyers have to demonstrate mastery of questioning, active listening, communicating, resilience, self-awareness, and empathy. Their Indiana Law education includes a head start on developing these important competencies — in addition to mastery of traditional doctrinal skills.

Firms, judges, and business leaders tell us that “IU Maurer School of Law graduates consistently come to the job more emotionally and substantively prepared than others from top-ranked schools.” Let us introduce you to tomorrow’s top-flight professionals.
