As the class of 2007 become Chicago-Kent alums, there are a few things to
be aware of:
All kentlaw.edu student accounts terminated July 30, 2007 after the July 2007 bar exam. December graduates e-mail accounts terminated 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 are as follows:
Chicago-Kent College of Law is pleased to inform you that free (kentlawalum.iit.edu) email service is now active. Your account has been created automatically. No sign up is necessary. Please see below for information on how to access your alumni email account and how to set it up to automatically forward your mail to any address you wish.
If you do not wish to use this email service, Chicago-Kent would still love to stay in touch with you wherever your path may take you. Please send your new email address to the Office of Alumni Relations by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please be aware that Chicago-Kent alum e-mail accounts are hosted by the Office of Technology Services (OTS) at the Illinois Institute of Technology Main Campus Since the accounts are not part of the Kentlaw system, the e-mail address of your alumni account may be in a format different than what you were assigned at Chicago-Kent.
