Selecting the right law school-the school with the right ﬁt and feel for
who you are and who you hope to become-matters immensely. We think
Chicago-Kent is a special place where students can capitalize on their
unique talents and interests. The factors below make a difference to us.
We hope they'll make a difference to you as well.
Our outstanding faculty comprises individuals who are both gifted
teachers and leading legal scholars, many of whom are shaping
American and international jurisprudence today.
Our three-year legal writing program, rigorous trial and appellate
advocacy programs, and extensive externship offerings prepare you
to hit the ground running when you graduate.
We capitalize on the connections between law and technology through
our high-tech learning environment, our multidisciplinary Institute for
Science, Law and Technology, our Web-based Access to Justice initiative,
and our expansive Program in Intellectual Property Law.
We offer ﬂexibility: Here you can move easily after your ﬁrst year
between full-time and part-time studies. You can spend summers
learning the profession in the Chicago-Kent Law Ofﬁces or trying
something different in our European or Asian study abroad programs.
As a 1L, you can opt for an early start in the summer, and you can
choose to begin to focus your studies early by taking an elective in the
spring term through the 1L Your Way program.
Our Program in Intellectual Property Law engages national and
international scholars and practitioners to provide an educational
experience committed to academic excellence and to training the top
intellectual property lawyers of tomorrow.
