Mark Your Calendar for the WIL Alumnae/i Reception 
We are happy to announce that on Tuesday, February 16, 1999, Women in Law and the Office of Alumnae/i and Student Relations is hosting a reception at Woman Made Gallery from 6:30 - 8:30 p.m.   Chicago-Kent alums and students will have the opportunity to network with each other while enjoying the gallery, which showcases works from female artists.  Watch the Record next semester for details!

Written a Great Outline? Donate it to WIL! 
WIL has a bank of outlines prepared by Chicago-Kent students for first-year classes and some upperclass courses as well.  But in order to keep our bank current, we need outlines donated each semester.  If you've created great outlines for any of your classes, please consider donating them to WIL.  These outlines are then available to WIL members for future semesters. 

To help save some trees, outlines will be accepted in electronic form only.  Please just e-mail WIL at with your outlines, telling us the class, the professor, the textbook(s) used in class, the semester & year, your name, and the program in which the outline is written (e.g. WordPerfect 7.0, Word 7).  If you have any questions about our outline bank, please click here or e-mail Sita Balthazar-Thomas, our Secretary, at  

REMINDER:Have you paid your membership dues yet?  
Please remember to pay your dues for the 1998-'99 year.  A $10.00 check made payable to Women in Law can be left in the WIL mailbox on the 2nd Floor.  Payment of dues allows you to participate in elections and mentorship programs, receive discounts on WIL merchandise, and makes you eligle for our fellowships!  Dues are used to fund programs and social events throughout the year, as well as fellowships we give to students over the summer to help pay for expenses when they volunteer with a public service agency.  Thank you! 

Happy Holidays! 
Good luck to everyone on their finals in the next few weeks.  We hope that everyone then has a RELAXING, stress-free winter break - YOU DESERVE IT!
