In this issue...
Dear Alumni and Friends:
This issue of our e-newsletter
includes ample proof of why I often refer to our school as possibly the
most important educational asset in the state of Indiana. The
breadth and depth of the influence of our alumni, faculty and students
is both impressive and humbling. For example, our international
programs reach from China, where we have a thriving partnership
with that country's number-one ranked law school, Renmin University, to
the halls of the United Nations, where our faculty and students will
soon have more access than ever before in the fight for human
rights. Meanwhile we also have students, like Todd Hassee,
national recognition for pro bono
services to Indiana's underserved communities. And the
documentary about the counter-terrorism simulation the law school staged
is also receiving special attention with an Emmy nomination.
would also like to add a special thank you to all of our supporters who
have donated this year. Our fiscal year ends on June 30, so there
is still time to donate or increase your current gift to the next giving
society level. We cannot do all of the excellent work we do
without your generous contributions. Thank you, once again.

We couldn't do it without you...
This time of year is special at academic institutions such as
ours. We celebrated commencement with our graduating students and
reunions with our alumni. These are wonderful chances to look back
and reflect on the law school experience. As one academic
year ends, we also start to look forward to the next - with all its
opportunities and excitement. At the end of June, the law
school's fiscal year will end. As we approach that date, we wanted
to thank all who have supported IU Law-Indianapolis during this fiscal
year. Your support has helped our students receive a tremendous
legal education. Looking back over this fiscal year, we have
witnessed many increases in our giving statistics as so many alumni and
friends of the law school have joined together to make a difference in
the lives of our students in so many ways. As we approach the
conclusion of this fiscal year, and work on planning for the next, we
once again see how vital the support we receive from our
benefactors is to accomplishing the law school's mission.
Without such support, we would not be in a position to offer many of the
"margin of excellence" aspects of an IU Law-Indy education.
If you have not yet made a gift to the law school this fiscal year - or
would like to make an additional gift, perhaps to raise your giving
to one of our donor honor society levels - it's not too late. We
value gifts of all sizes and can assure you that your support truly does
have an impact.
If you would like to make a gift before
the end of this fiscal year, please make checks payable to the "Indiana
University Foundation" with "Law-Indianapolis" on the memo line.
Your donation must be received by June 28, 2011 in order to receive
credit for fiscal year 2011. If received after this date, your
gift will be credited for fiscal year 2012.
Please send your donation to:
Indiana University School of Law - Indianapolis
c/o Indiana University Foundation
PO Box 663802
Indianapolis, IN 46266-3802
