Sandra Zemm was a partner in the Labor and Employment Department at Seyfarth Shaw's Chicago office; she passed away in September 2008 after a long battle with cancer. Seyfarth Shaw and Ms. Zemm's family, friends, and colleagues have raised money to fund an annual prize in her honor.

The Sandra P. Zemm Prize in Labor and Employment Law will be awarded annually to a third or fourth year student in the Labor/Employment Law Certificate Program at IIT Chicago-Kent who has demonstrated the qualities that made Sandy so special:

A commitment to pursue a career in labor and employment law, a pioneer spirit and willingness to take the initiative, and a gracious and generous attitude toward helping those in need.

The Prize this year is $1,000. If you know someone in the Certificate Program whom you think embodies the characteristics for which Ms. Zemm is remembered, please consider nominating that person for the Zemm Prize.

To nominate a student, please send an e-mail naming the student, with a paragraph or so describing the reasons you think the student deserves the Zemm Prize. Please feel free to nominate yourself also, or to suggest nominations to faculty.

Deadline for nominations by students: FRIDAY, MARCH 13, 2015.

Send nominations to Ms. Sharon Wyatt-Jordan via email at,



It gives us great pleasure to announce that Joseph Sexauer has been awarded the 2014 Sandra P. Zemm Labor Law Prize. The Prize was established in 2009 at IIT Chicago-Kent by the law firm of Seyfarth Shaw to honor the memory of Sandra P. Zemm, who died in September 2008 after a lengthy battle with cancer.
