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 Indiana Supreme Court established ICLEO more than 20 years ago to help bring diversity to the legal profession. Since then more than 570 have graduated as ICLEO fellows. Applications are available online at courts.in.gov/cleo and are due by March 1, 2019. Students who successfully complete the Summer Institute may be eligible for a fellowship award for up to three years. The award 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 2019. All applicants go through a rigorous application process that is separate from the Indiana law school application process. Applicants should contact Staff Attorney Carlton Martin at ICLEO@courts.in.gov with questions.
