Special Summer Program and Indiana CLEO
Applicants whose LSAT and/or GPA is outside the range of those persons typically accepted may be invited to attend our special summer program OR the Indiana CLEO Summer Institute.
The Special Summer Program through IU Robert H. McKinney School of Law provides instruction in legal writing and a substantive law area. Continuation in the fall semester is not contingent upon performance in the summer program. No additional application is required to be considered for this program; all applicants whose files are complete by February 1 will be given priority consideration. Selection for the summer start is made by the Admissions Committee. Students typically selected for summer admission are those the Committee determines can benefit from a rigorous, individualized summer course.
The Indiana Council on Legal Education Opportunity (ICLEO) provides minority, low-income, and educationally disadvantaged college graduates with assistance in pursuing law degrees and careers in the Indiana legal community.
Sponsored by the Indiana Supreme Court, the ICLEO Summer Institute provides students with intensive preparation for legal studies, tips for success in law school, a close network of friends, and the mentorship of professors.
Students who successfully complete the ICLEO Summer Institute may be eligible for an annual living stipend of $6,500, which may be awarded for up to three successive academic years. ICLEO also helps students locate law-related summer employment after the first year of law school.
There is a separate application process for ICLEO. For more information, see: www.in.gov/judiciary/cleo.
