The School of Law
The LL.M. Program is a logical extension of our existing J.D. Program and the law school's expanding international outreach: the Center for International and Comparative Law; the China Law Summer Program for American and foreign law students and lawyers based in Beijing at Renmin (People's) University of China School of Law; the European Law Summer Programs; the Latin American Law Program and Student Exchange; various faculty exchange programs with law schools in Australia, Europe, Asia, and the Americas; and the Program in International Human Rights Law, which provides summer internships with human rights organizations at various locations spanning the globe.
Since 1991, the law school has published the Indiana International and Comparative Law Review as a forum for scholarship on a wide range of legal issues. The European Journal of Law Reform has its editorial office at the school, managed by Professor Emmert, Faculty Advisor of the International and Comparative Law track of the LL.M. Program.
Our law building, Lawrence W. Inlow Hall, was completed in 2001. It is a magnificent, $37 million state-of-the-art facility on the cutting edge of educational technology and instruction. In the atrium of Inlow Hall, the flags of 30 countries representing our current international graduate law and J.D. students join the U.S. flag in a dramatic display of colors to greet students, faculty, and visitors. The Ruth Lilly Law Library, with 530,000 volumes in hard copy and microform, is one of the largest legal research libraries in the United States. It is a full United Nations depository, has a 20,000 volume Commonwealth Collection, and contains documents of the European Commission on Human Rights. The large, well-appointed Wynne Courtroom is a classic blend of form and function.
Inlow Hall, as well as the other buildings and some outdoor common spaces on the campus of IUPUI, also offer wireless internet access.
Other areas in Inlow Hall are reserved for study rooms and for student organizations and activities. Students can have a meal or a snack in the cafeteria or relax in the student lounge. Computer centers provide additional computer access for all students. Inlow Hall also houses the Center for International and Comparative Law; the Center for Intellectual Property Law and Innovation; the Civil Practice, Disability, and Criminal Defense Clinics; the nationally recognized William S. and Christine S. Hall Center for Law and Health; the Program in International Human Rights Law; the Program on Law and State Government; several Summer Programs; and several Law Reviews.
