The Indiana Supreme Court has opened applications for the 2021 Indiana Conference for Legal Education Opportunity program serving student groups that are traditionally underrepresented in law school.
Interested students must submit their applicants by March 8 to participate in the June 2021 ICLEO program. This year’s program will be held June 13-July 24 at the Indiana University Robert H. McKinney School of Law in Indianapolis.
Established in 1997 as an effort to increase diversity in the legal profession, ICLEO is an academically rigorous preparatory institute that provides professional development programming, field visits and social events. To be eligible, applicants must be college graduates who have been accepted into an Indiana law school accredited by the American Bar Association by the time the six-week program begins.
Applicants who are accepted into the ICLEO institute should be prepared to be in-residence, but the program may be hosted virtually due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Students who successfully complete the program will receive a $4,800 scholarship per semester for up to six semesters.
The Indiana Court of Appeals is also accepting applications for its ICLEO program. The deadline for the COA program is March 12.
