Chicago-Kent College of Law: Alumni E-Brief
Alumni E-Brief
Dean Harold J. Krent

From the Dean

Student Organization Initiatives

I am delighted to relay that our student groups have become increasingly involved in ensuring that their time at Chicago-Kent is productive. I am proud to recognize them for their contributions to the school. 

On Friday, March 4, the Environmental Law Society is hosting the Great Lakes Environmental Law Symposium, featuring EPA Region 5 Administrator Susan Hedman as the keynote speaker. Co-sponsored by the Chicago Park District, the symposium is bringing together a diverse group of experts on the Great Lakes to discuss the likely outcome of the ongoing litigation related to the Asian carp, potential changes to disinfection requirements for the Chicago River, and whether officials should pursue hydrologic separation of the Great Lakes and Mississippi River watersheds.

That same evening (March 4) is the kick-off of the Chicago-Kent Lambdas 2011 LGBT Civil Rights Conference. Conference activities take place Saturday, March 5 at the law school and are eligible for up to 5.0 hours of CLE credit. Topics include marriage equality litigation, LGBT teen suicide, bullying and hate crimes, and transgender rights, among many others. The Chicago-Kent Lambdas have been hard at work bringing together what will surely be an excellent conference for the legal community. 

The Kent Justice Foundation (KJF) is planning its annual Spring Auction, scheduled for Thursday, March 31. KJF raises funds for fellowships that support students who take public interest positions over the summer. They are currently looking for donations for both the silent and live auctions; if you are interested in donating sports tickets, gift certificates, a lunch with you, or the like, please contact them at kjf@kentlaw.edu. And don’t forget to attend the Auction and bid on packages as well. Towards mid-March, KJF will also offer bidding online prior to the auction.

I look forward to seeing our alumni in San Diego on March 3, and hope to see many of you this spring at different law school activities.

Sincerely,

Harold J. Krent
Dean and Professor of Law

Chicago-Kent students advance to the 2011 National Trial Competition Finals
For the fifth year in a row, a trial advocacy team from Chicago-Kent has won the Region 8 championship of the National Trial Competition (NTC), the premier trial advocacy tournament in the U.S. The team of Ryan Nolte '11 and Rachel Remke '12 advanced to the final rounds of the NTC, taking place April 6-10 in Houston, TX. The duo is the 24th team in the past 30 years from Chicago-Kent to win the regional competition.

A second team—Joseph Carlasare '12, Julie Levinson '11, and Jeremiah Lewellen '11—reached the competition's final round and narrowly missed joining Nolte and Remke in the national competition. The teams were coached by retired Illinois Appellate Court Justice David A. Erickson; Cook County Circuit Court Judge Demetrios Kottaras '84; Sulema Medrano '09 of the Cook County State's Attorney's Office; Rachel Moran '08 of the Office of the State Appellate Defender; David M. Lavin of Field and Goldberg; and retired attorney George Domas '82, who was a member of Chicago-Kent's first trial advocacy team.

More than 1,000 law students from nearly 300 teams representing 147 law schools participate in the annual competition, which is sponsored by the American College of Trial Lawyers, the American Bar Association and the Texas Young Lawyers Association. Chicago-Kent won the national championship in 1988, 2007 and 2008.

Thurgood Marshall Mock Trial Team advances to National Finals
For the second consecutive year, the Chicago-Kent chapter of the Black Law Students Association (BLSA) has a team advancing to the national finals of the Thurgood Marshall Mock Trial Competition. The winning team members are Onika Angus '11, Adella Deacon '11, Janelle Fairchild '11, and Marcell Taylor '12. Deacon and Fairchild were also members of the team that represented the region in the 2010 national finals in Boston.

A second team of Clyde Guilamo '11, Natashia Holmes '11, Temilade Oduala '12, and Rachel Oliver '13 advanced to the quarterfinal round of the tournament. Both teams are coached by Cook County Circuit Court judges Israel Desierto '90, Maxwell Griffin, Jr., Donald Havis and Sybil Thomas '91. Chicago-Kent's participation in the competition is supported by a gift to the law school from the law firm of SmithAmundsen LLC.

Prof. Katharine K. Baker

Two members of the Chicago-Kent community will be honored with the IIT Julia Beveridge Award at a ceremony on Thursday, March 10, 3:00-5:00 p.m. at IIT in the MTCC Ballroom. The Award is named after Julia Beveridge, the first registrar of Armour Institute, which later became IIT. Each year, the award is given to IIT-affiliated women who have demonstrated an outstanding commitment to the university or have made significant contributions to her profession through the dissemination of knowledge, research, teaching, and public presentations. Chicago-Kent Professor Katharine K. Baker is being honored with the Faculty Award, and Pamela A. Paziotopoulos '90 will receive the Alumna Award. RSVP and/or donate here.

Katharine K. Baker, professor of law at Chicago-Kent, largely focuses her work on issues pertaining to women. She has written extensively about sexual violence, in particular about the legal and social understandings of rape and sex. In recent years, she has focused on family law issues, writing numerous articles on the interrelationships between legal, cultural and biological constructions of parenthood, marriage and family.

Pamela A. Paziotopoulos '90 began her career as a prosecutor for the Cook County State's Attorney's Office, focusing in the area of domestic violence. In 1996, she joined the American Prosecutor's Research Institute's Criminal Prosecution Division as a senior attorney, traveling to 38 of the 50 states to conduct training and speak on domestic violence. In 1997, she was recruited to the Cook County State's Attorney's Office to create and supervise its Domestic Violence Division. She monitored the prosecution of over 100,000 domestic violence cases emanating each year from the city of Chicago and surrounding area.

In 2002, Paziotopoulos formed her own consulting group, serving both the public and private sectors. She joined Forest Financial Group in 2010 as special policy advisor, assisting clients and other organizations through education and policy guideline development. She has also been honored by Today's Chicago Woman as one of 100 women making a difference in Chicago, as the first recipient of the Distinguished Alumni Award from Hinsdale South High School, and she received an award from the Illinois Security Chiefs for making a difference in security, safety and law enforcement.
