Sandra P. Zemm was a partner in the Labor and Employment Department at Seyfarth Shaw’s Chicago office. Ms. Zemm passed away in 2008 after a long battle with cancer. Her family, friends, and colleagues created the Sandra Zemm Prize to honor her.

The Sandra P. Zemm Prize in Labor and Employment Law is awarded annually to a graduating student in Chicago-Kent’s Labor/Employment Law program who embodies Ms. Zemm’s “commitment to a career in labor and employment law, pioneer spirit and willingness to take the initiative, and gracious and generous attitude toward helping those in need.”

Yuting Li embodies the qualities that made Ms. Zemm so special to her colleagues and the legal community. Yuting has taken part in every aspect of the Labor and Employment Law Certificate Program at Chicago-Kent, including taking on leadership roles. She is the current president of the Labor and Employment Law Society, where she is doing an amazing job. She is also a student editor for the Employee Rights and Employment Policy Journal and the Illinois Public Employee Relations Report. Yuting externed at Laner Muchin and for Justice Terrence J. Lavin in the Illinois Appellate Court First District. Additionally, she worked as a legal intern at the Workplace Rights Bureau of the Illinois Attorney General’s Office, the Chicago Housing Authority, and currently at Delaney Law P.C. Yuting’s academic accomplishment are also noteworthy; she received the CALI award for both Labor Law and Negotiations.

Like Ms. Zemm, Yuting is always ready to help people in need. Her classmates have described her in some of the following ways: “Yuting has always been very helpful and supportive;” and Yuting is very involved in trying to help other students take advantage of the labor and employment certificate program.” Beyond helping her fellow students, Yuting cares deeply about the educational rights of migrant workers’ children. She is also dedicated to serving the public, as evidenced by her volunteering at the Illinois Legal Aid Online and Chicago Volunteer Legal Services Chinatown Pro Bono clinic.
