Back to TopCommentsE-mailPrintBookmark and Share

Central Indiana students who have an interest in the law will get an up-close-and-personal look at it through an intensive summer program beginning June 6 at Indiana University School of Law – Indianapolis.

Just The Beginning Foundation, a nonprofit organization of lawyers, judges, and other citizens dedicated to developing an interest in the law among a diverse group of people, is presenting the free program to 35 Indianapolis-area diverse and underserved students. The weeklong Summer Legal Institute hopes to inspire students to consider and pursue a career in the legal field.

JTBF is partnering with U.S. Judge Tanya Walton Pratt, Bose McKinney & Evans, Barnes & Thornburg, Ice Miller, Reach for Youth Inc., and the law school to host various parts of the institute, including a networking reception, lunches with attorneys, and negotiation exercises, said Dana Horst, director of development and marketing for JTBF. Judge Pratt will host a Federal Courts Day June 7.

This is the second year JTBF has conducted the Summer Legal Institute in Indianapolis. The first program was held in June 2010. Horst said the organization hopes to make Indianapolis an annual program site for the Summer Legal Institute.

A few openings remain available for students. Those interested in attending should download the application and send it to the program directors at summerprograms@jtbf.org. Applications must be received by noon on June 3. Those interested in volunteering can contact the program directors or Horst at dhorst@jtbf.org.
