Indiana Tech’s law school opens

It’s a project that has been more than two years in the making, but Indiana Tech officials will soon welcome the public for the dedication ceremony of its new law school.

The ceremony for the Indiana Tech School of Law will begin at 10 a.m. Sept. 14 at the Schaefer Center gymnasium.

Indiana Tech’s law school opened its doors to its first class of 32 students on Monday, Janet Schutte, director of marketing, said.

The ceremony will include three quest speakers: Greg Zoeller, Indiana Attorney General; Frank Easterbrook, chief judge of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit in Chicago; and Katherine Broderick, dean of the David A. Clark School of Law at the University of the District of Columbia.

“We are very pleased that three distinguished members of the legal community will share the day with us,” Indiana Tech President Arthur E. Snyder said.

The ceremony will also introduce Peter Alexander as the vice president and dean of the law school.

Alexander began his duties in January 2012, but the ceremony will recognize his role as a campus administrator and the chief operating officer of the new law school, Schutte said.

In late January, Snyder and Alexander announced that the law school would open on the west end of campus, between Maumee Avenue and Washington Boulevard.

The law school admitted its first student, Megan Marks, 21, in November.
