Court seeks ICLEO applicants

Back to TopCommentsE-mailPrintBookmark and Share

The Indiana Supreme Court posted a reminder on its website today that applications for the Indiana Conference for Legal Education Opportunity are due March 1 for the 2011 ICLEO summer institute that will take place at Notre Dame Law School from June 13 through July 22.

The program was started in 1997 as a way to encourage more minority, low-income, and disadvantaged students to attend Indiana law schools and ultimately enter the legal profession.

A total of about 30 students from all four Indiana law schools will be accepted to the program. The six-week summer conference, which takes place before the participants’ first year of law school, helps law students get a head start on their legal educations.

Law school admissions officers at law schools in Indiana highly encourage those who are eligible to apply. They said that many eligible students are unaware of the opportunity or they are unaware the deadline for ICLEO is in line with, if not earlier than, law school application deadlines.

Past participants have also said it offers a good networking opportunity for students because they are able to connect with current and past ICLEO participants for help while they are in law school. It also improves students’ chances of completing law school.

By completing the summer program, students will also qualify to receive an annual stipend to help offset the costs of their legal educations.

Information about the requirements for applicants and the application is available on the court’s website. For more information, contact Camille T. Wiggins, interim ICLEO program manager, at cwiggins@courts.state.in.us or (317) 232-2542.

Past participants, biographies and a five-minute documentary about the class of 2009 and their experiences at the summer institute is on the court’s website.

  1. "...not those committed in the heat of an argument." If I ever see a man physically abusing a woman or a child and I'm close enough to intercede I will not ask him why he is abusing her/him. I will give him a split second to cease his attack and put his hands in the air while I call the police. If he continues, I will still call the police but to report, "Man down with a gunshot wound,"instead.

  2. And so the therapeutic state is weaonized. How soon until those with ideologies opposing the elite are disarmed in the name of mental health? If it can start anywhere it can start in the hoosiers' slavishly politically correct capital city.

  3. So this firebrand GOP Gov was set free by a "unanimous Supreme Court" , a court which is divided, even bitterly, on every culture war issue. WHAT A RESOUNDING SLAP in the Virginia Court's face! How bad must it have been. And all the journalists, lap dogs of the status quo they are, can do is howl that others cannot be railroaded like McDonald now??? Cannot reflect upon the ruining of Winston and Julia's life and love? (Oh I forget, the fiction at this Ministry of Truth is that courts can never err, and when they do, and do greatly, as here, why then it must be ignored, since it does not compute.)

  4. My daughter is a addict and my grandson was taken by DCS and while in hospital for overdose my daughter was told to sign papers from DCS giving up her parental rights of my grandson to the biological father's mom and step-dad. These people are not the best to care for him and I was never called or even given the chance to take him, but my daughter had given me guardianship but we never went to court to finalize the papers. Please I have lost my daughter and I dont want to lose my grandson as well. I hope and look forward to speaking with you God Bless and Thank You for all of your help

  5. To Bob- Goooooood, I'm glad you feel that way! He's alive and happy and thriving and out and I'm his woman and we live in West Palm Beach Florida, where his parents have a sprawling estate on an exclusive golf course......scum bag
