dean krent named chicago lawyer's person of the year

Congratulations to Dean Krent who was named Chicago Lawyer magazine's 2018 Person of the Year. According to Editor Paul Dailing, "Although Dean Krent will be stepping down sometime next year, this recognition isn’t a lifetime achievement honor or a nod and salute at the end of a period of service. He was chosen because of the impact he has had within the last year. Rather than kick back, rest on laurels and lame duck his way during his last few months, Krent kept working on new, innovative projects redefining the role of a law school in 2018."
