Chicago-Kent College of Law established the Center
for Access to Justice & Technology (CAJT) to make
justice more accessible to the public by promoting the use
of the Internet in the teaching, practice, and public access
to the law.
Public Interest Class Picking Session
Once the fall schedule is released, professor Staudt and

of public interest elective courses and answer your questions
about the professors and substantive material covered in
the class. Snacks and drinks will be provided.
