We welcome all 2008 grads into our 11,000+ alumni community. As an alumnus/a of Chicago-Kent you have access to the Chicago-Kent Alumni Online Community. The comunity allows you to:

  • Connect with classmates.

  • Update your personal information and create your own blog.

Accounts for May 2008 graduates will be available in mid-July. Click here to sign up now and we will send you your login information as soon as the accounts are active!

Email Forwarding

Email and network accounts will be terminated on Monday, August 4 (the first Monday after the summer bar exam).

As a Chicago-Kent graduate, the Office of Alumni Relations is pleased to offer you the option of setting up an alumni.kentlaw.edu email address through our e-mail forwarding service.  This service is available through the Chicago-Kent Alumni Online Community and allows you to choose a username@alumni.kentlaw.edu address that will be forwarded to your specified personal email account (e.g. gmail, yahoo, or work e-mail, etc).  

This system allows you to utilize a simple e-mail address to give to family and friends, and your username can be your current username@kentlaw.edu or you can create a new one.  You’ll never have to notify everyone in your address book of a new or discontinued e-mail address because you can simply update your personal e-mail address by logging into the Online Community and emails will subsequently be forwarded to that email address.  

In order to access email forwarding, all you have to do is sign up for the Chicago-Kent Alumni Online Community. Accounts for May 2008 graduates will be available in mid-July. Accounts for December 2007 graduates are already available. Click here to sign up now!
