our new organization!
Chicago-Kent PALS organization was formed to help parents
attending law school balance their school activities,
educational needs, and career goals with their family lives.
PALS will provide support, networking opportunities, and
resources for students who are parents, caregivers, or who are
interested in family-work life topics. PALS will sponsor
presentations on career paths and family-work issues,
networking events open to students and their families, and
participate in the Chicago-Kent Parents E-mail Discussion
Forum. Our goals include establishing a mentor program,
creating a directory of students with families, and making
improvements in available child-care resources on
