Indiana

Indiana was admitted as the 19th US State on December 11, 1816. The state is the 17th most populous US state with approximately 6.6 million residents, and 38th largest by area at approximately 36,000 sq.miles. The capital city is Indianapolis, and the nickname is “The Hoosier State”. The state falls in the 7th Circuit of the US Court of Appeals.

Today, Indiana is still known as a manufacturing state, and its economy is dependant on auto, steel, and pharmaceutical industries. The state is also driven by major sports events, as it is home to The NFL’s Indianapolis Colts, NBA’s Indiana Pacers, and it notably hosts the Indianapolis 500 and the Brickyard 400 Motor Sports Races annually.

The Indiana state government operates out of Indianapolis, and is divided into three branches; Executive, Legislative, and Judicial branches. 

The Supreme Court of Indiana is the apex of the court system in Indiana, and it oversees the lower courts and commissions that comprise the judicial branch in the state.  Courts include the Tax Court, the Indiana Court of Appeals.  The court system is broken down by county, and larger cities like South Bend or Evansville, have courts of concurrent jurisdiction.  Commissions, such as the Judicial Nominating Commission, assist the judicial branch in operations.

The Executive branch consists of elected officials, and the governor is responsible for state functions.  The Legislative branch is a bicameral legislature, with the Indiana House of Representatives as the lower house and the Indiana Senate as the higher house. 

Indiana is home to Notre Dame Law School, Indiana University, Purdue University, and Butler University. It also houses several historical sites and popular tourist attractions in the state. Among these are Indiana Dunes National Park, Angel Mounds, the Allen County Courthouse, Butler Fieldhouse, and the Indianapolis Motor Speedway.

The National Law Review covers state and federal cases from the state of Indiana. Tax and bankruptcy court appeals, agency news, immigration, healthcare, and cases in other areas of the law. The National Law Review also covers upcoming events, and state-specific news in Indiana.
