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. Well, maybe it's because they are unelected, and, they have a tendency to strike down laws by elected officials from all over the country. When you have been taught that "Democracy" is something almost sacred, then, you will have a tendency to frown on such imperious conduct. Lawyers get acculturated in law school into thinking that this is the very essence of high minded government, but to people who are more heavily than King George ever did, they may not like it. Thanks for the information.

  2. I pd for a bankruptcy years ago with Mr Stiles and just this week received a garnishment from my pay! He never filed it even though he told me he would! Don't let this guy practice law ever again!!!

  3. Excellent initiative on the part of the AG. Thankfully someone takes action against predators taking advantage of people who have already been through the wringer. Well done!

  4. 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.

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