Summer Candidacy Program

Students who do not receive an invitation to join the Law Review based on academic performance may participate in the Summer Candidacy Program. To participate, students in the following categories must have a cumulative GPA of at least 3.000 at the end of the spring semester:

  • Students who have completed only one academic year in the day division
  • Students who have completed at least one academic year in the evening or part-time day division, but not more than two academic years in the evening or part-time day division
  • Transfer students who have completed one year of academic work at Chicago Kent, but who were not enrolled at Chicago Kent at the end of their first year if day division, or second year if evening division

Students who do not fall within any of the above categories are eligible to participate in the Summer Candidacy Program if they have completed at least one academic year at Chicago Kent and have a cumulative GPA of at least 3.250 at the end of the spring semester immediately prior to the Summer Candidacy Program.

The Law Review Executive Board selects which papers, if any, qualify for an invitation to the Law Review based on an evaluation of the case comments submitted. The papers are evaluated anonymously.
