Summary: The Indiana University Maurer School of Law has entered into a memorandum of understanding with Vassar college to establish a scholarship and mentoring program for Vassar College students interested in pursuing legal education.

According to the MOU, the Vassar Law Scholars program will offer at least two graduates for admission each year to the Maurer School of Law and the scholarships will cover 50 percent of annual tuitions of the selected students. There will also be a formal mentoring program. Depending on residency and other factors the chosen students may witness a reduction in cost of law school over three years by $45,000 to $75,000.


Stacy Bingham, assistant dean of studies and director of the career development office at Vassar said, “Vassar is excited to be a part of this endeavor … We fully support our students in their post-graduation goals, and a strong liberal arts education is excellent preparation for a career in law.”

Each year, Vassar will nominate at least two students or alumni for admission to the Maurer School of Law, provided the applicants meet the law school’s admission criteria. Other indications of future success, such as prior academic performance, letters of recommendation, past professional and other experience, and desire to study at the law school, also will be considered. Applications will be accepted beginning with the law school’s 2015 entering class.

The IU Maurer School of Law will hold a workshop on law school applications, including information about the Vassar Law Scholars program, at 5:15 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 15, in Rocky 200.
Before the workshop, at 4 p.m., the law school’s executive associate dean for academic affairs and C. Ben Dutton Professor of Law Donna Nagy, Vassar ’86, will deliver a talk on the Supreme Court’s recent decision that corporations can choose not to comply with regulations issued under the Affordable Care Act. The title of her lecture, which is free and open to the public, is “What the Hobby Lobby Court Did and Didn’t Decide.”
