Indiana Lawyer


On May 5, our faculty, staff, friends and family will gather in Indiana University’s beautiful auditorium to celebrate the IU Maurer School of Law Class of 2018. Presiding at our commencement ceremony is a privilege, and our graduates will go on to do great things. I look forward to having them return to the school to hear of their continued success.

As we celebrate the achievements of this year’s graduating class and look forward to the future, we also look back and celebrate the many accomplishments of those graduates who came before them. We recognize alumni achievements informally all year long through social media and our alumni publications, and formally through two prestigious awards: the Academy of Law Alumni Fellows and the Distinguished Service Award.
