(INDIANAPOLIS) - Applications are available for the Indiana Conference for Legal Education Opportunity (ICLEO) program.

The ICLEO Program is designed to assist minority, low-income, and educationally disadvantaged students pursue a law degree and legal career in Indiana. 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 February 15, 2017.

ICLEO offers students a preparatory institute the summer before they begin 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 ICLEO Summer Institute begins in June 2017 and have an active application on file at an Indiana law school. All applicants go through a rigorous application process that is separate from the Indiana law school application process.

Please contact ICLEO Director Ashley Rozier at ICLEO@courts.in.gov with questions.
