The Indiana Court of Appeals announced applications are now available for the 2021 Indiana Conference for Legal Education Opportunity program.
The ICLEO program assists low-income or educationally disadvantaged law students in Indiana in earning their degrees and pursuing legal careers. The program is a 10-week paid internship where first- or second-year law students get to work closely with Indiana Court of Appeals judges to gain hands-on experience working with court cases.
Students interested in applying should provide a resume, two letters of recommendation, a writing sample, and, if applicable, a certification from their law school that they are eligible to participate in the program. More information is available here.
Applications should be sent to Larry L. Morris, Administrator, Indiana Court of Appeals, Suite 1080, South Tower 115 West Washington Street Indianapolis, IN 46204. Applications must be submitted by March 12.
Preference will be given to applicants who are certified by their law schools as eligible to participate in the CLEO program, which runs May 10-July 16.
Established in 1997, the ICLEO program was created to help bring diversity to the legal profession and designed to assist traditionally underrepresented groups in pursuing a legal career. Questions may be directed to Shannon Myers at [email protected]
