About Our School
The Indiana University Robert H. McKinney School of Law is one of two law schools at Indiana University. Our location in Indianapolis provides an advantage to our students and faculty, who have access to state and local governments as well as the opportunity to learn from and work with many of our state's practicing attorneys, judges, and government officials. Our school has an enrollment of more than 1000 students and over 100 full and part-time faculty. In addition to our full-time day division, we have the only part-time evening division in the state and we offer several joint degree programs in conjunction with several other schools on our campus.

Our law school building, Lawrence W. Inlow Hall, is located on the IUPUI campus, in the heart of the capital city of Indianapolis, and is mere steps away from state courts and federal government offices. Our law library, the Ruth Lilly Law Library, provides faculty and students with access to all major legal research databases as well as hundreds of other interdisciplinary databases and more than 30,000 electronic books. While the emphasis of the library’s collection is on the fundamentals of American law generally, it has strong print and digital collections in the areas of health law, human rights, and international law with developing collections in intellectual property and environmental law.
The Law Library houses a collection of more than 600,000 print volumes and an extensive collection of microforms. It also holds a 20,000-volume collection of Commonwealth materials along with many U.S. government and United Nations publications. The United States collection includes a comprehensive collection of federal legislative and Congressional Research Service documents online.
For those interested in historical research, the library has an extensive collection of Indiana legislative materials extending back to the pre-statehood period. The library also houses historical materials from states contiguous to Indiana.
