Written a Great Outline? Please donate it to WIL! 
WIL has a bank of outlines prepared by Chicago-Kent students for first-year and upperclass classes.  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 dues-paying 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 

WIL Alumnae/i - Student Reception Feb. 16th 
We are happy to announce that on Tuesday, February 16, 1999, Women in Law and the Office of Alumnae/i and Student Relations are 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.  Come to our general meetings to get the full scoop! 

REMINDER:Have you paid your membership dues yet?
