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.

I have searched for decades, then you want me to pay someone a huge price to contact my son. THIS is extortion and gestapo control. OPEN THE RECORDS NOW. OPEN THE RECORDS NOW. OPEN THE RECORDS NOW.

  5. Out here in Kansas, where I now work as a government attorney, we are nearing the end of a process that could have relevance in this matter: "Senate Bill 45 would allow any adult otherwise able to possess a handgun under state and federal laws to carry that gun concealed as a matter of course without a permit. This move, commonly called constitutional carry, would elevate the state to the same club that Vermont, Arizona, Alaska and Wyoming have joined in the past generation."
