The 18th annual conference on Section 1983 Civil Rights Litigation

On Thursday and Friday, March 22-23, 2001, the law school will host Professor Sheldon Nahmod's 18th annual Section 1983 conference.  The conference features nationally prominent law professors and practitioners who offer instruction on both the fundamentals and the more advanced aspects of §1983 practice and trial skills, and analyze the latest case decisions.  If you can attend only one session, come for Professor Nahmod's lecture on the prima facie case against individuals.  This is a unique opportunity for students who intend to be involved in federal court litigation when
they practice.

Law students (JD only) enrolled at Chicago-Kent are welcome to attend any or all of the program sessions free of charge (note: course materials are not included; however, copies of the materials
will be available in the library at a later date).  Pre-registration is required!  To register, please stop by the Office of Continuing Legal and Professional Education (Suite 673) to fill
out a registration form.  Students must register no later than Tuesday, March 20, 2001.

Also, if you are interested in providing some of your time to volunteer at the program in exchange for complementary course materials and an opportunity to network at the program reception,
please let us know when you stop by the office to register, or by e-mailing rvicario.


The 23rd annual Piper Lecture  
Immigration and the Workplace

On Tuesday, April 3, Chicago-Kent will present the 23rd annual Kenneth M. Piper Lecture, Immigration and the Workplace, from 11:30-1:00 p.m, in the auditorium.

The United States is a nation of immigrants and economic opportunities have been one of the major attractions for those immigrating to the U.S.  Consequently, immigration and the workplace are inherently linked.  Issues include the appropriate approach to undocumented workers and the degree to which workers from other countries should be invited into the U.S. in areas of
real or perceived labor shortages.  

Professor Howard F. Chang of the University of Pennsylvania Law School will deliver the lecture.  Commentators are Ana Luisa Avendaño, assistant general counsel for the United Food and Commercial Workers Union, Ethan E. Bensinger, partner and managing director of the Chicago office of Fragomen, Del Rey, Bernsen & Loewy, P.C., and Professor Lenni B. Benson of New York Law School.  

All faculty, students, and staff are invited to attend.  


Student volunteer opportunities for law students (JD only) are available for some of the Continuing Legal and Professional Education programs listed below.  If you are interested in providing some of 
your time to volunteer at any of these programs, in exchange for complementary course materials 
and the opportunity to network at conference luncheons and receptions, please stop by the Office 
of Continuing Legal and Professional Education (Suite 673) or e-mail rvicario for more
