[SUPREME] ICLEO celebrates 20 years of bringing diversity to the legal profession
Start Date: 7/17/2017 All Day
End Date: 7/17/2017
Entry Description
The Indiana Conference for Legal Education Opportunity (ICLEO) is celebrating its 20th anniversary. The program is designed to encourage and support students of historically underrepresented backgrounds pursue a legal career. 

On July 20 at 5:30 pm EDT, more than 160 ICLEO alumni and supporters including lawyers, judges, and the current class will gather in the Indiana Supreme Court courtroom for a ceremony to celebrate the program. Indiana Chief Justice Loretta H. Rush will welcome guests, “Our profession is strengthened by judges and lawyers with a variety of backgrounds and experiences. The ICLEO program is helping to encourage diverse individuals to consider a legal career and I am proud to be a part of the celebration.”

Since it was established in 1997 by Chief Justice Randall Shepard, Governor Frank O’Bannon, and the General Assembly, more than 500 individuals have participated as ICLEO scholars.  The program includes an intensive summer study to help students prepare for law school, networking opportunities, and financial support. Scholars may be eligible for an annual $9,000 scholarship. Former Chief Justice Shepard says, “ICLEO has been a dramatic demonstration of the Indiana legal community’s commitment to equal opportunity in the profession.”

Applications for the next ICLEO class will be available in the fall at courts.in.gov/cleo. For questions about eligibility or to attend the July 20th celebration, contact ICLEO Coordinator Ashley Rozier at ICLEO@courts.in.gov. Media interested in attending the event should contact Kathryn Dolan at kathryn.dolan@courts.in.gov.
