Professor Schumm named to Best Lawyers
Professor Joel Schumm, 98, has been named to the peer-reviewed Best Lawyers in America, 19th edition. He was named to the list because of the work in appellate practice.
According to Best Lawyers, inclusion on the list is based entirely on peer review. The methodology is designed to capture, as accurately as possible, the consensus opinion of leading lawyers about the professional abilities of their colleagues within the same geographical area and legal practice area. Best Lawyers employs a sophisticated, conscientious, rational, and transparent survey process designed to elicit meaningful and substantive evaluations of the quality of legal services.
Professor Schumm is the director of the Judicial Externship Program and teaches in the Appellate Clinic. Earlier this year, he was a semifinalist for a vacancy on the Indiana Court of Appeals.
