The Indiana Supreme Court has announced the 26 participants in this year’s Indiana Conference for Legal Education Opportunities Summer Institute. The future law students come from around the country and will attend one of Indiana’s four law schools starting this fall.
The students are currently attending the six-week Summer Institute, which this year is at Valparaiso University School of Law and began June 14. The students receive tips for law school success and professional development as well as introductions to areas of law they will encounter during their first year in school. After completing the institute, they are eligible for annual stipends.
ICLEO students also spoke with high school students who were participating in a Teen Law College at the law school June 13-26.
ICLEO was established in 1997 by the General Assembly and then-Gov. Frank O’Bannon at the urging of Chief Justice Randall T. Shepard. The program is designed to help minority, low-income, or educationally disadvantaged college graduates to pursue a law degree and career in Indiana.
