Law students complete diversity program

Back to TopE-mailPrintBookmark and Share

A program implemented by the state to help minority, low income, or educationally disadvantaged college graduates who will attend law school and plan to practice in Indiana has wrapped up its annual event.

This year's six-week Indiana Conference for Legal Education Opportunity Summer Institute included 30 students and took place at Indiana University School of Law - Indianapolis, where the majority of the students will be starting in the fall.

Names and biographical information on the students from all over Indiana, around the country, and a few international students can be found at http://courts.in.gov.

During the course, students receive advice on what to expect in their first year of law school, how to succeed as students, and how to network and prepare for their careers.

The Indiana Supreme Court's Division of State Court Administration provides staff support and financial management for ICLEO.

ICLEO students are eligible for an annual stipend ranging from $6,500 - $9,000, which could be awarded for up to three successive years if the student remains eligible.

While in law school and after graduation, ICLEO fellows have a network of mentors who are ICLEO alumni and others who support the program's efforts.

  1. What is this, the Ind Supreme Court thinking that there is a separation of powers and limited enumerated powers as delegated by a dusty old document? Such eighteen century thinking, so rare and unwanted by the elites in this modern age. Dictate to us, dictate over us, the massess are chanting! George Soros agrees. Time to change with times Ind Supreme Court, says all President Snows. Rule by executive decree is the new black.

  2. I made the same argument before a commission of the Indiana Supreme Court and then to the fedeal district and federal appellate courts. Fell flat. So very glad to read that some judges still beleive that evidentiary foundations matter.

  3. KUDOS to the Indiana Supreme Court for realizing that some bureacracies need to go to the stake. Recall what RWR said: "No government ever voluntarily reduces itself in size. Government programs, once launched, never disappear. Actually, a government bureau is the nearest thing to eternal life we'll ever see on this earth!" NOW ... what next to this rare and inspiring chopping block? Well, the Commission on Gender and Race (but not religion!?!) is way overdue. And some other Board's could be cut with a positive for State and the reputation of the Indiana judiciary.

  4. During a visit where an informant with police wears audio and video, does the video necessary have to show hand to hand transaction of money and narcotics?

  5. I will agree with that as soon as law schools stop lying to prospective students about salaries and employment opportunities in the legal profession. There is no defense to the fraudulent numbers first year salaries they post to mislead people into going to law school.
