Applications are available for the Indiana Conference for Legal Education Opportunity (ICLEO) program. The ICLEO program is designed to assist traditionally underrepresented groups in pursuing a legal career. The Supreme Court established ICLEO 20 years ago to help bring diversity to the legal profession. Applications are available online at courts.in.gov/cleo and are due by March 1, 2018.
ICLEO offers students a preparatory institute the summer before law school. This year, the institute is being hosted at Notre Dame Law School. The Summer Institute 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 scholarship for up to three years. The scholarship is currently $4,500 per semester.
To be eligible, applicants must be college graduates by the time the six-week ICLEO Summer Institute begins in June 2018. All applicants go through a rigorous application process that is separate from the Indiana law school application process.
