Chicago-Kent College of Law

"Learning By Doing" Open House

Thursday, November 17, 2011
5:30 p.m. - 8:00 p.m.

It is not enough to know the theory of law. One must also master the practice of law. That is why Chicago-Kent students have extraordinary opportunities to gain experience in settings where theory and practice intersect. Students work for clinical professors who are attorneys of record for death penalty cases, employment discrimination matters, racketeering offenses, and complex civil litigation. They also serve externships with the federal judiciary, private law firms, corporations and public sector employers. Additionally, students receive practical legal training in courses in trial advocacy and through a certificate program in Litigation and Alternative Dispute Resolution.

A panel of students will discuss the extraordinary opportunities they have at Chicago-Kent to gain experience in settings where theory and practice intersect. As you will hear, this experience can take many different forms and is an invaluable part of the legal education we provide. "Learning by Doing" prepares our students for the demands of their professional careers.

Faculty, students and staff will be available to meet with you during the opening reception. Tours of the law school will be available following the panel discussion.
