Deciding to go to law school is one of the most important steps not only in a student's academic career but in their life.  It should be made only after the most careful consideration. The Health Professions and Prelaw Center will support and help guide you through this decision-making process. If you determine that law school is the correct path for you, we will assist you at every step of the complex and often confusing application process. Our mission is to help you become the most thoughtful, well-informed, well-prepared, and successful applicant possible.

Think you can’t make it??  THINK AGAIN!!  The most recent data available shows 86.29% of total IUB applicants (including alumni) to law schools were admitted to at least one law school in 2016 (the national admission rate was 75.81%).  IU Bloomington students who applied as seniors were even more successful, and were admitted at the phenomenol rate of 93.13%!


As you can see, for anyone who is committed to a career in law  --  there has NEVER been a better time to apply!  This situation is not likely to change soon.
