High court names ICLEO participants

Back to TopE-mailPrintBookmark and Share

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.

More information on each of this year’s participants can be found at http://courts.in.gov/cleo.

  1. Thank you, John Smith, for pointing out a needed correction. The article has been revised.

  2. The "National institute for Justice" is an agency for the Dept of Justice. That is not the law firm you are talking about in this article. The "institute for justice" is a public interest law firm. http://ij.org/ thanks for interesting article however

  3. I would like to try to find a lawyer as soon possible I've had my money stolen off of my bank card driver pressed charges and I try to get the information they need it and a Social Security board is just give me a hold up a run around for no reason and now it think it might be too late cuz its been over a year I believe and I can't get the right information they need because they keep giving me the runaroundwhat should I do about that

  4. It is wonderful that Indiana DOC is making some truly admirable and positive changes. People with serious mental illness, intellectual disability or developmental disability will benefit from these changes. It will be much better if people can get some help and resources that promote their health and growth than if they suffer alone. If people experience positive growth or healing of their health issues, they may be less likely to do the things that caused them to come to prison in the first place. This will be of benefit for everyone. I am also so happy that Indiana DOC added correctional personnel and mental health staffing. These are tough issues to work with. There should be adequate staffing in prisons so correctional officers and other staff are able to do the kind of work they really want to do-helping people grow and change-rather than just trying to manage chaos. Correctional officers and other staff deserve this. It would be great to see increased mental health services and services for people with intellectual or developmental disabilities in the community so that fewer people will have to receive help and support in prisons. Community services would like be less expensive, inherently less demeaning and just a whole lot better for everyone.

  5. Can I get this form on line,if not where can I obtain one. I am eligible.
