Launch of Lawcountability, J.D.: New Resource for Chicago-Kent students

In a competitive job market, it helps for law students to find dynamic ways to stand out and distinguish themselves.  Lawcountability, J.D. is a powerful new technology platform that will help students:

  • Raise your profile
  • Improve your networking
  • Apply key job search strategies
  • Connect with prospective employers

Lawcountability, J.D. provides law students with:

  • On-demand programs that show you how to connect with the people you are trying to meet rather than collect random business cards
  • Automated e-mail reminders to help you execute your goals
  • The ability to identify your objectives and fit them into your busy schedule
  • A unique game-like point system to measure your performance and compare it to your peers

Using Lawcountability, J.D., students could see positive results by committing just ten minutes per week!   

Lawcountability, J.D. is open to all JD students and recent graduates of Chicago-Kent. 

Watch this presentation to learn how it works: http://alkaps.audioacrobat.com/playv/WYJlrcJW

Watch for your invitation to watch the ten minute program every Monday morning; or log-in at any time to http://www.lawcountabilityjd.com    

To log-in for the first time, enter your Chicago-Kent email address, and click on "forgot password," which will allow you to create your own password. 

You may opt-out if you do not wish to receive the messages from Lawcountability J.D. 

If you have trouble logging-in, email kentcso@kentlaw.iit.edu.

Fall Resume Books: Opt-in continues. Sign up!

Fall Resume Books are available for “opt-in” for all rising 2Ls, 3Ls and Recent Graduates (2013 and 2014 classes). Because employers may request a resume book at any time, students are encouraged to opt-in to desired resume books as soon as possible. Even if you have secured employment for this fall, keep in mind that fall resume books may be used by employers for hiring for Spring or Summer 2015.

As a reminder, a Resume Book is exactly what it sounds like, a collection of resumes that can be distributed to employers on request. Our resume books will collect the resumes of students and recent graduates in a particular class (e.g. 2Ls) with similar interests (e.g. immigration law, real estate law, or working in the northern suburbs), and then notify employers who fit those criteria that the books are available for review. These books can also be used when an employer calls up our office looking for a particular type of student to clerk for them (“We are looking for a 3L interested in litigation who has worked as a 711 clerk.”), so that we can respond quickly and efficiently to employer requests (in that case by looking at the 3L Litigation Resume Book for students who have been 711 clerks). Read more here.

On-Campus Interview

Fall Recruiting: Please Report Callbacks and Offers!

If you receive callbacks or job offers during the fall interview season, please report this to the Career Services Office by sending an email to kentcso@kentlaw.iit.edu (or email your career advisor directly).  Please include from what source you obtained the interview/offer (OCI, resume collect, CCBA job fair, Loyola Patent Fair, etc.).  We keep track of these in order to determine how students are doing and where our students end up working during the summer/after graduation.  Also, if you have any concerns about how your interviews are progressing or questions about the interview process, please make an appointment to talk with a career advisor.

The Latham Diversity Scholars Program, started in 2005, is designed to increase the number of diverse attorneys who want to pursue careers in global law firms, such as Latham & Watkins, which has approximately 2,100 lawyers located in the world's major business and financial centers.

Eligibility
To become a Latham Diversity Scholar, you must be enrolled in an ABA-accredited law school and intend to practice law in a major city of the United States. You must have successfully completed your first year of a full-time JD program by the application deadline, with an expected graduation date of spring 2016, and you may not be the recipient of a similar scholarship award from another law firm.

Award
Latham Diversity Scholars will receive a gift of $10,000 non-renewable scholarship for their second year of law school (2014 - 2015). This scholarship is not contingent upon receiving or accepting an offer of employment at Latham & Watkins. We awarded four scholarships each in 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010 and 2011. In 2012, we expanded our scholarship to include six diversity scholars. In 2015, we anticipate naming six scholars as well.

To be considered for the Latham Diversity Scholars Program, please complete and submit an application form, resume, unofficial or official law school transcript and personal statement to Latham & Watkins. The application process is open to law students who meet the eligibility requirements stated above. Applications must be received by September 26, 2014.

Your complete application package must include the following items:

  • Personal Statement (no more than 500 words)

  • What led you to pursue a legal career
  • If applicable, what led to your desire to practice in a global law firm environment

Skadden Fellowship Applications due October 6

The Skadden Fellowship applications are due October 6, 2014.  The Skadden Fellowship Program, described as "a legal Peace Corps" by The Los Angeles Times, was established in 1988 to commemorate the firm's 40th anniversary, in recognition of the dire need for greater funding for graduating law students who wish to devote their professional lives to providing legal services to the poor (including the working poor), the elderly, the homeless and the disabled, as well as those deprived of their civil or human rights. The aim of the foundation is to give Fellows the freedom to pursue public interest work; thus, the Fellows create their own projects at public interest organizations with at least two lawyers on staff before they apply.

Fellowships are awarded for two years. Skadden provides each Fellow with a salary and pays all fringe benefits to which an employee of the sponsoring organization would be entitled. For those Fellows not covered by a law school low income protection plan, the firm will pay a Fellow's law school debt service for the tuition part of the loan for the duration of the fellowship.  Fellows will be notified by December 5.
To learn more about the fellowship, go here: http://www.skaddenfellowships.org/application
