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.

  2. We won!!!! It was a long expensive battle but we did it. I just wanted people to know it is possible. And if someone can point me I. The right direction to help change the way the courts look as grandparents as only grandparents. The courts assume the parent does what is in the best interest of the child...and the court is wrong. A lot of the time it is spite and vindictiveness that separates grandparents and grandchildren. It should not have been this long and hard and expensive...Something needs to change...

  3. Typo on # of Indiana counties

  4. The Supreme Court is very proud that they are Giving a billion dollar public company from Texas who owns Odyssey a statewide monopoly which consultants have said is not unnecessary but worse they have already cost Hoosiers well over $100 MILLION, costing tens of millions every year and Odyssey is still not connected statewide which is in violation of state law. The Supreme Court is using taxpayer money and Odyssey to compete against a Hoosier company who has the only system in Indiana that is connected statewide and still has 40 of the 82 counties despite the massive spending and unnecessary attacks

  5. Here's a recent resource regarding steps that should be taken for removal from the IN sex offender registry. I haven't found anything as comprehensive as of yet. Hopefully this is helpful - http://www.chjrlaw.com/removal-indiana-sex-offender-registry/
