Earl Singleton

Clinical Professor of Law Emeritus

  • B.A., Oberlin College 1972
  • J.D., Indiana University Maurer School of Law 1986

Prior to his legal education, Professor Singleton held a variety of administrative positions at the university level. Before returning to Indiana Law as a clinical professor, Singleton practiced privately, specializing in litigation. In 1989 he joined the Indiana Law community as supervising attorney of the Community Legal Clinic and in 1991 was appointed the director of Legal Services.

Until his retirement at the end of the 2017-18 academic year, Singleton supervised and evaluated the performance of the legal interns and administered the operation of the Community Legal Clinic. Through the clinic, third-year students have the opportunity to sharpen and develop skills while representing clients under the Indiana Student Practice Rule. In this professional setting, students are introduced to client interviewing and counseling, fact investigation, drafting, negotiating, trial techniques, and preparing for and conducting trials and administrative hearings.

"It can be fun learning to be a lawyer. You'll be exposed to situations that will break your heart or just crack you up," Singleton says. "But there is nothing better than achieving justice for those who have been denied it in some way."

A member of the Indiana and Michigan bars, Mr. Singleton is an active participant at state and national law conferences.
