Student Organization Headlines

Headlines for the Week of August 27, 2012

The Federalist Society

Happy Hour with the Federalist Society!

Are you conservative or libertarian? Do you feel that the ideas of liberty and limited government are being ignored today? Are you interested in meeting other like-minded folks at Chicago-Kent? Do you like beer? If so, then come out to happy hour and meet the executive board of the Federalist Society on Wednesday, August 29!

We are an organization that eats, sleeps and breathes limited government and enumerated powers. We are not avowed Democrats nor are we Republicans; we just want smaller and more limited government.

This happy hour will be an informal way for 1Ls as well as everyone interested to meet the executive board and get involved with future events. So please join us at Dugan's on Halsted (Adams at Halsted) at 4 p.m. on the 29th!

If you have any questions, please e-mail us at

-Alex Knecht (President)

September 13: Race Judicata

Race Judicata is a 5k run/walk that supports Chicago Volunteer Legal Services, and basically the entire Chicago legal community participates. Not only is it TONS OF FUN, it is a great way to meet fellow students, as well as alumni and faculty, and to network with attorneys from around the city. If you're new to running, don't worry, all experience levels are welcome!

The Sportfeasors have an official team this year, and we're expecting a huge turnout. We've reserved a tent for those who sign up to run with the Sportfeasors, and we'd love to have as many students run with us as possible! When you register for the race (, please choose Chicago-Kent Sportfeasors from the team drop down menu, and email when you do so that we can make sure to include you. Register by September 7 to receive a reduced rate!

For more info on the rules, go to the Race Judicata website and check out the competition entry form.

Thanks, and we hope to see you all there!

Erin Forbes, President
Matt Dillinger, Vice President
