Greetings Class of 2007 – Information on Commencement
Greetings from the Office of Alumni Relations! While many
of you may associate our office with just alumni affairs,
you may be interested to know that we interact with students
all the time, most prominently as we celebrate your graduation
by planning all of the details regarding Commencement.
This year's Commencement Ceremony will be held on SUNDAY,
May 20, at the Arie Crown Theater, McCormick Place.
The day includes a formal indoor ceremony at the Theater,
followed by a lovely reception at the venue. Seven tickets
will be issued to each graduate, and students may then elect
to purchase additional tickets for their guests.
While you will hear more from us in the coming weeks, look
regularly in this section of the Record for important information
you will need to know, as well as upcoming updates on the
law school's Web site.
Take A Break – Tuesday, March 6
Lunch will be served!
Join the SBA and Alumni
Board of Directors for this special Take a Break. Lunch
will be served. From Lawyer to Entrepreneur: Going Beyond
the Practice of Law, with Chicago-Kent alumnus Jonathan
Gone are the days where a law degree is solely meant to
enable one to practice law. It can also fuel the vision
of an entrepreneur who identifies an unmet need and seeks
alternative business opportunities. Jonathan Carson, a Chicago-Kent
alum, envisioned a day where technology would revolutionize
the legal and financial markets. As a result, his company,
Kurtzman Carson Consultants
LLC (KCC), has emerged as one of the fastest-growing
companies in America.
