Pros = very supportive faculty and staff, great student mentoring program, affordable, great location in relation to the local legal community, joint degree programs, and specialized law programs (i.e. health law, intellectual property, environmental law, corporate business law and criminal law programs) Cons = disorganized at times, the staff doesn't work well together, the administration sometimes forgets to focus on the education of the students instead of the bureaucracy of higher education, and very few scholarships for non-first year students

IU McKinney offers at least one thing that other schools cannot compete with: location. Located right in the heart of downtown Indianapolis, McKinney offers the opportunity for students to work for the top law firms in the state and the most sought after public interest positions in the state, all while attending school full time. McKinney also offers an evening program for those who work full time. The diversity at McKinney is great and continues to grow.

PROS *IU Mckinney is really a great especially if you want to live and work in Indiana. The location of the school is one of its best assets. *The faculty is wonderful and has high expectations of students. They are available to help you and are responsive to emails. *I love having (free) lockers to use and the microwaves and refrigerators around campus. *The security of the law school building is good. *The bathrooms are kept clean. The Deans Tutorial Society (DTS) provides 1st year students with student - tutors, which is great because these tutors provide valuable insight to the professors and final exam. CONS *Lack of diversity especially when it comes to minorities. However, the school has made an tremendous improvement in the last two entering classes. *Computer access and printing - It would be nice to have more computers and printers available for student usage. *There is one student organization that seems to be kept at the pedastal and a good amount of student organization seem to be neglected. *It is hard to get parking near the law school at certain times of the day, especially in the morning even after 8am. This is particulary true, at the beginning of the semester.

The school is great with first year students, but I feel like the teachers could do better for the upperclass. Parking and traffic is always awful. Scholarship support is great and there's lots of programming to support 1Ls. More scholarships for continuing students would be great, especially those not from the area to offset the cost of living in a major city.

The faculty are great, and the curriculum is great. But the professional development office doesn't do a whole lot to help secure employment outside of Indianapolis. The overall campus administration is disorganized and often causes traffic/parking jams and other such inconveniences. The law school is improving, but has a bad habit of notifying students of valuable events, internships, & scholarships at the very last minute.

Great school! Could use a little more attention to parking lot security and get priority parking for the lot near the law school.

I am in my third year at McKinney and am very glad I decided to attend law school in Indianapolis. The location of the law school allows me to network with attorneys and work during school. McKinney provides its students with a challenging curriculum and the tools to succeed.
