IU Law School Partners with Indiana Supreme Court

Posted: Updated:
BLOOMINGTON -

The Indiana University Maurer School of Law and the Indiana Supreme Court are joining forces to create a program in which up to five first-year students will work with judges throughout the state. The judicial clerkship program aims to educate students on different facets of rural and smaller-city practice while letting them assist trial court judges with research, drafting motions and opinions and courtroom practice and procedure.

Indiana Chief Justice Loretta H. Rush, a 1983 graduate of the Maurer School of Law, and Judge Edward W. Najam Jr. of the Indiana Court of Appeals spearheaded the program. Both serve on the Maurer School of Law's Board of Visitors.

The program is part of Supporting Rural Justice, an organization that works to improve access to the courts, expand legal services, and expose law school students to rural practice and smaller legal communities.

Maurer School of Law students will be selected for this program by a committee. Successful applicants will be named by mid-February and will receive a $4,000 stipend to cover travel and living costs during their participation in the program.
