Esther Rothstein

I am greatly saddened to report that Esther R. Rothstein '49 died on Thursday, December 3.  Ms. Rothstein was an effective champion of opportunities for women in the legal profession, having founded the Women's Bar Association of Illinois, and having served as President of the Chicago Bar Association.  She was a member of the law school Board of Overseers and the IIT Board of Trustees.  She was a great lady and a great lawyer.  Private funeral arrangements occurred on Friday, December 4.  She was generous to Chicago-Kent, and we expect to continue efforts begun before her death. 

Soros Open Society Foundation Grant

Early this week, the Soros Open Society Foundation granted Chicago-Kent approximately $76,000 to support its interprofessional "Operation Kosovo" activities in Albania and the Kosovo region of Bosnia. 

Alumnus Gift

I am delighted to report that alumnus Herb Roberts has made a major gift to the law school for $200,000 to support a scholarship named in honor of former Deans Fred Herzog and Bill Zacharias.  At a luncheon on December 1 commemorating the gift, Mr. Roberts spoke of his debt to Chicago-Kent for preparing him for a highly successful career as a patent lawyer. 

Dean Henry H. Perritt, Jr.
