Entry Description

INDIANAPOLIS – The Court of Appeals of Indiana has selected seven students from three Indiana law schools for its 2013 Carr L. Darden Conference for Legal Education Opportunity (CLEO) internship program.

The 10-week internships will immerse the students in the court’s daily work, guided by some of Indiana’s most accomplished and respected jurists. The interns will also make site visits to other courts and government agencies, including the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Indiana, the Office of the Indiana Attorney General and the Indiana Civil Rights Commission.

“CLEO interns enjoy an entrée to the Court of Appeals that they might not otherwise have,” Chief Judge Margret G. Robb said. “We’re pleased to welcome them to the court and excited to mentor these future leaders of Indiana’s legal community.”

Robb also thanked the Indiana General Assembly for partnering with Indiana courts to create and sustain the CLEO program.

Five of this year’s interns are past Fellows of the Indiana CLEO Summer Institute, which helps prepare students for the rigors and challenges of law school. The others satisfy eligibility requirements for the Indiana Conference for Legal Education Opportunity, which was established by statute in 1997 to assist Indiana minority, low income or educationally disadvantaged students pursue law degrees and careers in Indiana’s legal and professional communities.

The Court of Appeals has participated in CLEO since its inception. Last year, the Court named its CLEO internships for the Honorable Carr L. Darden, who retired from the court last year and now serves as a Court of Appeals Senior Judge

"Being selected as a Carr L. Darden CLEO fellow is an honor,” said Court of Appeals Judge Rudolph R. Pyle III, a former CLEO fellow who was appointed to the court last year. “The fellowship provides an excellent opportunity to grasp the fundamentals of thorough legal research and writing that will serve as the foundation for a successful legal career."

The 2013 interns and their assignments are:

 

n Ashley N. Canan, Valparaiso University Law School, Judge Patricia A. Riley

n Adriana Figueroa, Indiana University Robert H. McKinney School of Law, Judge Michael P. Barnes

n Moein Khawaja, Indiana University Maurer School of Law, Judge Terry A. Crone
