Kent Justice Foundation 

August 26, 2002

      Ladies & Gentlemen...

         Welcome back to those of you returning and an even bigger welcome to those who are just starting at Chicago-Kent!!  My name is Rebecca Kohn and I am the president of the Kent Justice Foundation - the Public Interest Law Student Organization.  If you are on the KJF mailing list already or you are just passing through scroll down and check us out.  KJF is the largest student organization at Kent and won Student Organization of the Year 2002. If you are interested in public interest or just want to get involved in an organization dedicated to helping the community we are the organization for you!! Our ultimate goal is to raise money to provide fellowships for law students who will be working in non-paying public interest related internships during the summer.  We do this by holding a Fall Spaghetti Fundraiser Dinner, bake sales, t-shirt sales and most importantly the KJF Annual Spring Auction!!!  The auction is one of the school's biggest events and you can be part of it!!! We are also involved in various charity walks/runs and other community volunteer projects.  If you have any questions please don't hesitate to email me at  I hope to see you at our first meeting. GOOD LUCK THIS YEAR!!!!
