Indiana Tech Law School Prepares for Semester with New Facility View Count: 22

Indiana Tech Law School, a new addition to Indiana Tech, will host open houses for lawyers, experts, and professors to take a sneak peek at what the school will offer. Three open houses this week will show the school to other faculty at Indiana Tech, members of the bench and bar, and donors, according to the IndianaLawyer.com.

The school’s dean, Peter Alexander commented, “We’ve got everything in place, we just need to start the school year.” Indiana Tech Law School was heavily criticized for opening up a new law school and bringing more graduates to a depressed market. The dean rebutted that the school will be different. The school will blend theory and practice and prepare students in a completely new and different way. Classes will begin Aug. 26 and the inaugural class will have 30 students. This number is down from the schools original goal by 70%, but as nationwide enrollment decreased, the numbers were adjusted to fit the times.

The location of the new law school is at Indiana Tech’s main campus in Fort Wayne. The school is physically designed with collaboration in mind, with spaces that open up with seating areas. The idea is that teaching shouldn’t be limited to classrooms, and that the discussion and social settings that promote asking questions will carry on with the help of comfortable environments. The dean finally commented, “We want to make sure the building is always comfortable and the wide-opening feeling you feel when no one is in the building is the same as when we’re at capacity.”
