Illinois State Bar Association Award

On Thursday, November 19th Chicago-Kent College of Law, Illinois Institute of Technology was specially recognized as part of the Illinois State Bar Association's Access to Justice Award. The ISBA honored the institution for its efforts in Bosnia and Herzegovina (Project Bosnia) where it assists in restoring the rule of law by providing legal institutions better access to information using Internet technology.

Newly Appointed Distinguished Professors

 I am delighted to report that the IIT Board of Trustees has approved the appointment of David Gerber and Joan Steinman as Distinguished Professorís.  Distinguished Professor is the highest faculty rank at the university, and is reserved for a small number of senior faculty, nominated by their own faculties and deanís, and approved by a university-wide committee of existing distinguished professors and named chairs. 

Dean Henry H. Perritt, Jr.
