Student experience

Preparing skilled professionals

The Law & Technology program offers many paths toward proficiency in this growing field. Individual courses across the curriculum, certificates and dual degrees from other Indiana University graduate schools, and a wide variety of extracurricular and co-curricular options create a robust educational experience for Maurer School of Law students.

Degrees and certificates

Students in the Program can earn a master's in cybersecurity risk management, a JD/MS in cybersecurity risk management, a certificate in cybersecurity law and policy, or a certificate in information privacy law and policy. Several dual degrees are also available through IU's Luddy School of Computing, Informatics, and Engineering.

Experiential and extracurricular activities

Clinics, including the Intellectual Property Law Clinic, provide Indiana Law students the opportunity to gain hands-on experience in law and technology. A summer or semester-long externship in IP law offers a similar immersion into the field.

In addition, several of the Law School's student organizations, including the Cybersecurity & Privacy Law Association and the Intellectual Property Association, sponsor events related to technology and welcome experts to campus who share their insights. CHiPS, a national organization that advances and connects women in technology, law and policy, has an active chapter at the Law School, hosting events and informal gatherings throughout the year.
