Headlines for the Week of July 2, 2007

Diplomas and Composite Pictures for Class of 2007

Diplomas and composite pictures for the class of 2007 graduates will be mailed to whatever address we (OILP) have on file for you. We expect to mail these important documents later this summer (not before August) so please contact us with the address you want us to use if you think we have an old address for you!

Summer Program for Foreign Undergraduate Law Students

From July 23 – August 10, the OILP will again conduct a summer program for foreign undergraduate law students. Students from the Beijing Institute of Technology (BIT) and from Chongqing’s Southwest University of Politics and Law (SWUPL) will be taught by Professor Jerry Lavin, assisted by Chicago-Kent rising third year student Hunter Hogan. The program includes lectures, a mock trial, site visits and excursions to legal, cultural and business institutions in the Chicago area. The group will also spend time at a baseball game and at Six Flags Amusement park

Alumni information for LL.M. and Exchange students

As you graduate and become Chicago-Kent alums, there are a few things to
be aware of:

All kentlaw.edu student accounts will terminate in July 30, 2007 after the July 2007 bar exam. December graduates e-mail accounts will terminate at the same time. The Alumni Relations Office automatically assigns each graduate a kentlaw.alum.iit.edu e-mail for life. This is a web-based e-mail address that is housed on a server at IIT. Details regarding set up and further instructions about this are forthcoming.

Keep in touch! The best way to keep in contact with your LL.M. and Exchange student classmates and friends is to visit the Chicago-Kent Office of Alumni Relations and join the Alumni Online Community.

"Guns, Takings and Trade"

What do “fast track” trade promotion authority (TPA), the Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms, and US ‘takings law’ have in common? Well, for one thing, they describe flash points in our political discourse where partisans have staked out ideologically strident positions. For another, they are all topics of very current, heated debate. Finally, when looked at from a small-d democratic perspective, these issues support a remarkable convergence of right and left viewpoints that should make any partisan sit up and take notice.
