SANDRA P. ZEMM LABOR LAW 2015 Winner

IIT Chicago-Kent College of Law
Institute for Law and the Workplace
April 2015

Sandra 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."

We are delighted to announce that this year's Sandra Zemm Prize is awarded to Samantha Dudzinski. Ms. Dudzinski embodies the qualities that made Ms. Zemm so special. First, her help for those in need has been demonstrated since early in her law school career through her work with CARPLS as a student volunteer, her work with Chicago-Kent's Society of Women in Law, and her membership in the Labor and Employment Law Society. Along the path to graduation, Ms. Dudzinski demonstrated her commitment to a career in Labor and Employment law by clerking for a firm that does Workers' Compensation law, as well as working in Chicago-Kent's Employment Discrimination Clinic. She serves this year as Secretary of the Labor and Employment Law Society here at Chicago-Kent, and has been instrumental in organizing presentations by the student Labor/Employment Law Society, including a recent faculty debate on whether the football players at Northwestern University are "employees" under the NLRA. Ms. Dudzinski is generous with her time in talking with first-year students and prospective students interested in Labor and Employment Law; her enthusiasm for Labor and Employment Law is a powerful incentive for others.

As in past years, the faculty of the Institute for Law and the Workplace are impressed with the achievements and generosity of so many of our graduating students. It has been a privilege to work with you all.
