David Gerber's Reception

Legal scholars from Chicago-Kent, University of Chicago, Northwestern University and DePaul University attended a reception August 26 honoring the publication of Professor David Gerber's new book, Law and Competition in Twentieth Century Europe.  Published by Oxford University Press, this book is the first to portray comprehensively the development of antitrust law in Europe.  It also explains the current dynamics of competition law and assesses its relevance for European integration and the future of antitrust law. 

First Meeting of Project Bosnia IPRO

The first Project Bosnia IPRO meeting was held Friday, August 28 in the Dean's conference room.  Dean Perritt, the instructor of the IPRO, met with IIT students from the main campus and the downtown campus to outline this fall's objectives.  Project Bosnia will focus its efforts on three major fronts: 
  1. Students will work with the Ministry of Justice for the Federation of Bosnia and Herzegovina to design and implement a Web-based database and legal network to support Bosnia's judicial structure.
  2. Students will continue efforts to implement Operation Kosovo.  This legal relief initiative seeks to use the Internet to provide legal assistance to the growing number of Kosovar refugees in Northern Albania as a result of the recent conflict between Serbia and Kosovo.
  3. Students will expand efforts to support the Bosnian refugee community in Chicago.
Enrollment for the Fall IPRO is still open and Dean Perritt welcomes any and all student involvement.  The next IPRO meeting is scheduled for Friday, September 4 in the Dean's conference room at the downtown campus, Suite 330.
