London Law Consortium: Brochures Available. Chicago-Kent offers a semester of legal study in London each Spring semester as part of a consortium with six other schools. If you are interested in the London Law Consortium for the Spring 2011 semester, please pick up a copy of the program brochure from Theda Mickey outside my office (Suite 320C). Spaces in the program will be allocated on a first-come, first-served basis. We must submit to the program administrators completed applications from all of our participating students no later than September 20. If you wish to discuss the program in more detail, contact Professor David Rudstein (email@example.com; 312/906-5354).
Student Health Insurance Cards. Student health insurance cards have been mailed to your home address (the address listed as your local address in the IIT system). If you do not receive your card, we are expecting additional cards to be mailed directly to Chicago-Kent after September 15. When they arrive, we will let you know when and where you may pick them up. If you have any questions, please contact the Student Health Center at 312-567-7550.
Some of you may receive cards even if you waived the student health insurance -- if so, please check your student account to make sure that the insurance fee has been removed. If you waived the insurance but received a card, you can dispose of the card.
