Project Bosnia IPRO Installs Ministry of Justice Database Server

Two undergraduate engineering students and one law student have returned from one week in Sarajevo, Bosnia, where they succeeded in installing an Internet-linked LAN and database in the offices of the Bosnian Ministry of Justice.  The network will permit courts, ministry officials, the bar, and the public to access court information, land records, and corporate filings regardless of whether the information originates in Sarajevo or in the cantons.  The three students represented the third Project Bosnia IPRO.  The entire IPRO has developed the database and network plan, and built the server from components bought in Chicago.  The project is supported in part by a grant from the United States Institute for Peace.


Assistant Dean for Career Services and Alumnae/i Relations

Stephanie Chu has been appointed Assistant Dean for Career Services and Alumnae/i Relations, as part of a reorganization that will improve linkages between Chicago-Kent alums and the career services function.  Dean Chu and Assistant Dean Poggendorf will work closely together to continue the close relationship between alumnae/i relations and development activities. 

Dean Henry H. Perritt, Jr.
