a list of donors that have responded (either favorably or not), please
e-mail hfritsch or stop by the SOS office (room 686) to pick up a copy

The '99 KJF Auction is fast approaching (Wednesday, March
24- 5:00-10:15pm in the Auditorium). We need plenty of help to make
sure that things go smoothly. If you're planning on working at a
public interest organization (including the State's Atty and other government
jobs- these are public interest jobs too!) this summer, you will especially
want to participate in KJF activities this semester. Seeing as KJF
is a public interest organization, we provide several summer fellowships
to students who have an unpaid position at a public interest organization.
We also match fellowship funds of other Chicago-Kent organizations.
The main requirement is that you help out with some of KJF's activities.
Our next meeting is Wednesday, February 17th at 3:00pm in room 170.
If you are interested in buying a Chicago-Kent T-shirt,
we have a new shipment available (blue writing on grey shirt). Come
to the SOS office in Room 686 or e-mail HFRITSCH or SSHIVPUR. We
will also sell shirts all day in the Spak on most days up until the auction.
If you are available to sit at the table for an hour, please e-mail HFRITSCH
or sign up at the next meeting.
We will have a bakesale all day in the Spak on the following
Wednesday, March 10
We need plenty of bakers & table sitters, so if you're
available on this day, please-mail TASHUR, or sign-up at the next meeting.
WHAT IS KJF?
The Kent Justice Foundation (KJF)
is a student organization committed to providing Chicago-Kent College of
Law students with the opportunity to work in the public interest sector.
KJF has the sole mission of establishing summer fellowships for students
who work in public interest law organizations. Through annual fundraising
events, KJF hopes to provide public interest organizations with much needed
assistance, while offering the students invaluable legal training through
their summer fellowships. KJF also sponsors a public service project
each semester. There are no dues, and anyone is welcome to join anytime!

This year's KJF Auction is scheduled

The KJF Auction is an annual event held each spring in
which items such as weekend stays at hotels, dinners with professors, tickets
to sporting events, and even airline tickets which are donated from area
establishements are auctioned off to raise money for fellowships for students
that work at public interest organizations over the summer. Kent
students, alumni, faculty, and friends are all invited for a good time.
In addition to the Auction, which was sponsored by Sam Adams, a wide variety
of food, beer, and wine are served. Last year's auction was a great
success- hundreds of people attended and over $16,000 was raised for fellowship
money. Recent recipients of fellowhips have worked for organizations
such as Cook County's Public Guardian, Cook County State's Attorney, AIDS
Legal Council, Legal Assistance Foundation, and the Environmental Protection
Agency. Generally, these recipients are students who have actively
participated in KJF events. If you are interested in helping out
with the Auction, or other aspect of KJF, please e-mail Auction Co-Chair
Heather Fritsch (hfritsch).
