31 students prepare for law school as ICLEO Fellows

Back to TopCommentsE-mailPrintBookmark and Share


The Indiana Supreme Court has announced this year’s Indiana Conference for Legal Education Opportunity Fellows, who are currently preparing for the start of the fall semester.

The high court posted the names and biographies of the 31 participants on its website July 12. Many of the students either are originally from Indiana or currently reside here. This year’s fellows also include students originally from Afghanistan, China, India, Nigeria, and Puerto Rico.

The 2011 fellows are attending the six-week Summer Institute at Notre Dame, which began in June and is scheduled to wrap up July 22. The location of the institute rotates among the four law schools in Indiana. The Summer Institute helps these students get ready for the rigors of law school with tips for professional development and a challenging curriculum.

The ICLEO program began in 1997 to encourage more minority, low income, or educationally disadvantaged college graduates to attend Indiana law schools and ultimately enter the legal profession. After completing the program, the students are eligible for an annual stipend of $6,500 - $9,000 for each year of law school.

Since the program began, the ICLEO website reports that around 300 students have successfully completed the Summer Institute and just under 300 have graduated law school.

The ICLEO program also has a new coordinator, Phyllisia Gant, who started at the end of May.

  1. Conour will never turn these funds over to his defrauded clients. He tearfully told the court, and his daughters dutifully pledged in interviews, that his first priority is to repay every dime of the money he stole from his clients. Judge Young bought it, much to the chagrin of Conour’s victims. Why would Conour need the $2,262 anyway? Taxpayers are now supporting him, paying for his housing, utilities, food, healthcare, and clothing. If Conour puts the money anywhere but in the restitution fund, he’s proved, once again, what a con artist he continues to be and that he has never had any intention of repaying his clients. Judge Young will be proven wrong... again; Conour has no remorse and the Judge is one of the many conned.

  2. Pass Legislation to require guilty defendants to pay for the costs of lab work, etc as part of court costs...

  3. The fee increase would be livable except for the 11% increase in spending at the Disciplinary Commission. The Commission should be focused on true public harm rather than going on witch hunts against lawyers who dare to criticize judges.

  4. Marijuana is safer than alcohol. AT the time the 1937 Marijuana Tax Act was enacted all major pharmaceutical companies in the US sold marijuana products. 11 Presidents of the US have smoked marijuana. Smoking it does not increase the likelihood that you will get lung cancer. There are numerous reports of canabis oil killing many kinds of incurable cancer. (See Rick Simpson's Oil on the internet or facebook).

  5. The US has 5% of the world's population and 25% of the world's prisoners. Far too many people are sentenced for far too many years in prison. Many of the federal prisoners are sentenced for marijuana violations. Marijuana is safer than alcohol.
