2020 ICLEO applications available

Applications are now available for the 2020 Indiana Conference for Legal Education Opportunity program, the Indiana Supreme Court announced Friday.

ICLEO applications are available online at courts.in.gov/cleo and are due by March 6.

More than 600 students have graduated from the ICLEO program, established in 1997 to help bring diversity to the legal profession and designed to assist traditionally underrepresented groups in pursuing a legal career.

Accepted applicants will attend the six-week ICLEO summer preparatory institute, hosted this year at Indiana University Robert H. McKinney School of Law in Indianapolis. The curriculum places a strong emphasis on academic rigor and provides professional development programming, field visits and social events.

Students who successfully complete the Summer Institute may be eligible for a fellowship award for up to six semesters. The scholarship is currently $4,800 per semester.

To be eligible, applicants must be college graduates and accepted to an American Bar Association-accredited law school in Indiana by the time the program begins in June. All applicants go through a rigorous application process that is separate from the Indiana law school application process.

For more information, applicants should email [email protected].
