Law Degree, cum laude

Indiana University Robert H. McKinney School of Law (IU McKinney) is located on the campus of Indiana University – Purdue University Indianapolis (IUPUI) in Indianapolis, Indiana. The law school is one of two law schools operated by Indiana University, the other being the Indiana University Maurer School of Law (IU Maurer) in Bloomington. Although both law schools are part of Indiana University, each law school is wholly independent of the other. With an enrollment of approximately 1,000 students, IU McKinney is the largest law school in the state of Indiana. In the summer of 2001, the school moved to its award-winning new building, Lawrence W. Inlow Hall.[1] Of the 195 American Bar Association (ABA)-accredited law schools evaluated for its 2013 edition (released March 13, 2012), U.S. News & World Report ranked the school 89th overall, ninth in legal writing, and eleventh in healthcare law.[2][3][4] In 2010, based on the number of graduates selected for inclusion in Super Lawyers magazine, that publication ranked the school 44th out of 180 law schools considered.[5] Formerly known as the Indiana University School of Law – Indianapolis, the school's name was changed in December 2011 in recognition of a $24 million gift from Robert H. McKinney, who previously served as chairman and CEO of First Indiana Corporation and is among the founders of Bose McKinney & Evans LLP, one of the largest law firms in Indianapolis.[
