Commencement 2014

With more than 14,000 alumni around the world, the Chicago-Kent Alumni Association serves you—our alumni—in many areas of your professional and personal lives. We hope you share our pride in the outstanding institution that is Chicago-Kent and encourage you to be an active member of the alumni community.

Chicago-Kent has achieved many milestones throughout its more than 125 year history. Chicago-Kent was the first law school to require three years of legal writing; was the first to incorporate computers into the curriculum; and boasts a tradition of excellence in trial advocacy and moot court. It is the strength and success of our alumni community that continues this legacy of a distinctive legal education. Our alumni collaborate with faculty and staff leadership to provide direction and financial support for the law school and act as mentors and advisors for our students. Alumni participation is vital to the continued success of the law school.

And your success is just as important to Chicago-Kent. We believe strong ties between alumni and the law school, as well as among fellow alumni are key to navigating the rigors of the legal profession. We encourage you to foster these relationships at alumni networking events, through our online alumni directory and in person when the opportunity arises.

We look forward to welcoming you to campus!
