FORT WAYNE, Ind. (AP) — Indiana Tech Law School is closing its doors next year.

The law school in Fort Wayne cited low enrollment and $20 million in losses. The board of trustees voted unanimously to close.

The school has 71 students.

Indiana Tech President Arthur Snyder said Monday that it was a difficult decision, but the law school won’t be able to attract enough students to remain viable.

University officials say current students have the option of completing the upcoming semester and those in their last year can graduate in May. Students in their first and second years will be able to transfer to other law schools.

The school was denied its first try at accreditation.

This decision does not affect the Mishawaka campus of Indiana Tech, located at the corner of Edison Lakes Parkway and Day Road.
