IU McKinney LL.M. Program Rates an A-Plus According to 'International Jurist'

The Master of Laws program at the Indiana University Robert H. McKinney School of Law received A-plus ratings from the International Jurist  in the categories of “Best Law School Experience” and “Best Value Law Schools,” and an A rating in the category of “Academics.”


Regarding the rating for “Best Law School Experience,” the magazine notes that LL.M. students are eligible to participate in IU McKinney’s law journals and experiential learning opportunities. In the “Best Value Law Schools” category, the magazine highlights scholarships and the low cost of living in Indianapolis. As for the “Academics” rating, the article mentions the percentage of faculty who studies or worked internationally and the availability of mentors to foreign students.


The magazine also featured the news of the formation of the Pro Bono United Nations Human Rights Reporting Organization, which was founded with the help of several of McKinney Law’s international students in January 2017. The item is featured in the “LL.M. News: Midwest” section of the magazine.
