From Professor Sanford Greenberg
Hearty congratulations to Chicago-Kent's Pamela Quigley and Max Stein, who won both the overall championship and best brief award at this weekend's National Moot Court Competition (Region 8). Max and Pam defeated teams from Notre Dame, Valparaiso, Northern Illinois, DePaul, and Loyola. The Chicago-Kent team thus earned the right to advance to the national run-offs of this prestigious appellate advocacy competition, which will be held in New York City.
Pam and Max's accomplishment marks the third year in a row that Chicago-Kent has sent a team to the national run-offs. Congratulations again to them and to their faculty adviser, Professor Kent Streseman. And thanks to all the faculty, alumnae/i, and students who judged the practice arguments.
From Professor Martin Malin
The Institute for Law and the Workplace invites you to attend a special colloquium commemorating the 35th anniversary of the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission on Tuesday, November 14, from 2:00-4:00 p.m. Chicago-Kent will host and co-sponsor the event with the EEOC.
The program will feature EEOC chairwoman Ida L. Castro and a panel of community leaders who will reflect on the EEOC's first 35 years under the general theme, "Where we have come from, where we are going." The panel will include Professor Howard Eglit, who will discuss age discrimination, and Chicago-Kent alumna Linda Mastandrea, who will discuss disability discrimination. The panel will also have speakers focusing on race, sex, and national origin, as well as a representative of the plaintiffs' bar and the management bar.
