Give the gift of education. Make a gift to the Chicago-Kent General Scholarship Fund and provide much-needed scholarship support to students as they explore the legal profession, embark on their careers and follow in your footsteps.


Last year, 86% of students received some scholarship assistance from Chicago-Kent. The median scholarship was $23,900 per year.


And a Chicago-Kent education is as good as it’s ever been, evolving and innovating to respond to today’s challenges. Chicago-Kent continues tocombine innovative experiential offerings with traditional intellectual firepower in targeted ways that better prepare students for the evolving demands of a transformed legal market. Students learn to leverage continuing technological developments that will transform the substance and practice of law during their career.


Our faculty provides sophisticated instruction in how to understand the ways in which technology is affecting substantive law, as well as how to use technology effectively to advance their future clients' interests. And our students are second to none in developing technology for the public interest to create greater access to justice for all.

Others see the strength of a Chicago-Kent education as well. We’re ranked:

  • 1st  in intellectual property law by Law Street Media
  • 4th in trial advocacy by US News & World Report
  • 2nd in appellate advocacy by Blakely Advocacy Institute
  • 22nd for the part-time program nationally
  • Among the top 10 law schools teaching technology as it applies to law practice by the ABA Journal 
  • 44th  in the nation based on scholarly impact 

In 2018, Chicago-Kent students celebrated many accomplishments: 


The Chicago-Kent team of Brittany Kaplan ’19 and Evan Kline-Wedeen ’18 won first place in the national finals of the International Trademark Association's 2018 Saul Lefkowitz Moot Court Competition, held March 17 at the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit in Washington, D.C.


The Chicago-Kent Immigration Law Society sent 12 students to the South Texas Family Residential Center in Dilley, Texas to work with individuals seeking asylum. The students assisted in preparation for hearings and interviews.


Alanna Elinoff '18 and Stefanie Ferrari '18 were selected to receive the 2018 Gary Laser Professionalism Award. Created in 2017, the endowed prize recognizes students working in the Law Offices of Chicago-Kent who have best exemplified promise as practitioners as well as the highest standard of ethics.


Julian Cagadas '20 was selected to receive a 2018‒19 scholarship from the Corporate Legal Operations Consortium. The scholarship is awarded to graduate students who have a business/metrics-driven focus related to the practice of law or who have demonstrated an interest in legal operations.


Chicago-Kent students Joanna Martin '19, Carl Sessions '19 and Rebecca Spira '19 were awarded 2018 Justice John Paul Stevens Public Interest Summer Fellowships. Each student spent their summer working for a public interest organization. 


Thank you for supporting Chicago-Kent today and all year long!
