Meeting with JD/MBA Students

In conjunction with the Downtown Campus Faculty Council, Dean Perritt has begun an inquiry on how to improve the JD/MBA program, by clearer guidance on course selection and schedules, better advising systems in both the law school and the business school, and possible new approaches to interprofessional law and business education.  He and others involved in the inquiry have begun meeting with students to get their views and suggestions. 

Anyone who has an interest in the subject is invited to communicate with Dean Perritt at 


Polish Visitors

On Friday, 1 October, the former prime minister of Poland, the current minister for privatization, the head of the Polish central bank, and other senior government officials made presentations at a day-long program on American-Polish cooperation to encourage economic development.  Organized by Professor Richard Warner, as part of his Project Poland activity, this conference marked the first major U. S. event under the partnership between Chicago-Kent and the Catholic University of Lublin, Poland.  LL.M. candidate Tomasz Sieniow, a Polish citizen who was involved in Project Poland before he came to Chicago-Kent, helped put the program together. 

Dean Henry H. Perritt, Jr.
