Lots of law schools

Renderings for the new Indiana Tech Law School

While there appears to be fewer students taking the LSATs and fewer students admitted to law school, one school in Indiana is looking to become the fifth law school in the state.

Indiana Tech Law School is looking to open in 2013, though it is not yet accredited by the American Bar Association. Four other law schools already exist in the state: Indiana University Maurer School of Law in Bloomington; Indiana University Robert H. McKinney School of Law in Indianapolis; the Notre Dame Law School and Valparaiso University School of Law.

Though the law school plans to focus on ethics, some are critical of the new Indiana institution.

“‘Chutzpah’ has been defined as murdering your parents and then pleading for mercy because you’re an orphan,” a law professor told Business Insider. “How about setting up another legal diploma mill in a hyper-saturated market, while claiming that what will set your school apart is its emphasis on ‘ethics’ and ‘professionalism’?”

  1. Would be helpful to know which law professor said this. Paul Campos, maybe?
