The Danger Inside the House: Addressing the Threat of Domestic Violent Extremism l March 23, 2023

For the last few years, the threat of violent extremism primarily has originated from domestic actors, rather than from abroad. Although the U.S. government has developed highly successful investigatory and prosecutorial strategies to combat internationally-based violent extremism, the domestic threat poses additional challenges because of the constitutional protections afforded to U.S. citizens. This all-day, in-person, seminar explores the evolving domestic violent extremism (DVE) threat and identifies ways in which federal, state, and local governments can work with non-government organizations and the private sector to mitigate the threat. Register Today!

The annual Chicago-Kent MLK Jr. Forum was established in 2016 to raise awareness about social justice issues impacting various communities in Chicago and beyond, identify potential causes of those issues and solutions and end with a call to action.

The 2023 MLK Forum will raise awareness about the continued injustices impacting Black and Brown communities, as a result of racist systems and institutions that were designed to oppress them. Esteemed panelists will establish the need for health and safety reforms that will not only protect the constitutional rights of all Illinois residents, but will also create safer communities throughout the state.

Through a discussion about current and developing Illinois legislation and policies designed to meet these goals, our guests will present ways in which law students, lawyers and members of the community at large can get involved in the fight for equity and freedom.

Career Services Office 3L Survey: Hey 3L Class! We hope your last year of law school has gotten off to a great start. We know you have had an unconventional, chaotic time (to say the least) over the past two years and so we are reaching out to you to see how we at Career Services can best help you over your remaining semesters. Since each student has their own questions, paths, needs, etc., we have put together a quick Google Form Survey to help us figure out where and what the needs are, both individually and as a class.

The survey only takes a few minutes to fill out, but will be instrumental in helping us figure out what support you and your classmates are looking for. Whether that support is programming & presentations, one-on-one career advice, bar exam questions or support, or to leave you alone till graduation, we want to hear from you and we appreciate you taking the time to fill out the survey. Fill out the 3L CSO Survey Here. Thank you in advance! -CK Career Services Office

Center for Research and Service (CRS): The Center for Research and Service (CRS) at IIT conducts the Student Voices Survey, a tool to collect data from students about their experiences at the university. We are seeking a student to represent Chicago-Kent to help craft the survey and analyze the results, ensuring that the survey/results are tailored to include concerns of our law students.

The Student Voices Survey is a student-led committee with oversight from CRS. The time commitment would likely be a few hours per month, varying based on building the survey initially and analyzing the results in the spring.

Please email SBA right away if interested!

We know you have had an unconventional, chaotic time (to say the least) over the past two years and so we are reaching out to you to see how we at Career Services can best help you over your remaining semesters. Since each student has their own questions, paths, needs, etc., we have put together a quick Google Form Survey to help us figure out where and what the needs are, both individually and as a class.

The survey only takes a few minutes to fill out, but will be instrumental in helping us figure out what support you and your classmates are looking for. Whether that support is programming & presentations, one-on-one career advice, bar exam questions or support, or to leave you alone till graduation, we want to hear from you and we appreciate you taking the time to fill out the survey. Fill out the 3L CSO Survey Here. Thank you in advance! -CK Career Services Office

Announcements

Self-Help Resource Center: On Tuesday, November 15th at 12pm in Room C35, come learn about Chicago-Kent’s Self-Help Resource Center! It’s a unique and meaningful volunteer opportunity at the Daley Center where students can help pro se litigants while also becoming familiar with the court system and local legal resources. For years, the center has been an important resource for court visitors, but it has not been open full time since fall 2020, so we need you to help it relaunch! This volunteer opportunity is open to 1Ls, 2Ls, and 3Ls! There are also leadership opportunities available. Co-sponsored by The Law Lab and the Public Interest Center. Light refreshments will be served.

Career Services Office 3L Survey: Hey 3L Class! We hope your last year of law school has gotten off to a great start. We know you have had an unconventional, chaotic time (to say the least) over the past two years and so we are reaching out to you to see how we at Career Services can best help you over your remaining semesters. Since each student has their own questions, paths, needs, etc., we have put together a quick Google Form Survey to help us figure out where and what the needs are, both individually and as a class.

The survey only takes a few minutes to fill out, but will be instrumental in helping us figure out what support you and your classmates are looking for. Whether that support is programming & presentations, one-on-one career advice, bar exam questions or support, or to leave you alone till graduation, we want to hear from you and we appreciate you taking the time to fill out the survey. Fill out the 3L CSO Survey Here. Thank you in advance! -CK Career Services Office

Center for Research and Service (CRS): The Center for Research and Service (CRS) at IIT conducts the Student Voices Survey, a tool to collect data from students about their experiences at the university. We are seeking a student to represent Chicago-Kent to help craft the survey and analyze the results, ensuring that the survey/results are tailored to include concerns of our law students.

The Student Voices Survey is a student-led committee with oversight from CRS. The time commitment would likely be a few hours per month, varying based on building the survey initially and analyzing the results in the spring.

Please email SBA right away if interested!

KJF Change Wars: It’s time for the next KJF fundraiser, also the last installment of the KJF Battle of the Sections! Next Week (11/14-11/18) we’ll be having Change Wars every day from 11:30-1:30 outside the Spak (Note: on Wednesday we will be on the 2nd floor).

Here’s how it will work:

  • Each 1L section will have a container at the table.

  • All paper money, checks, or donations made through Venmo will count toward that section’s total.

  • All loose change will count against that section’s total.

  • The section with the highest total at the end of the week will get 4 points toward the Battle of the Sections, second place will get 2 points, and last place will get 1 point.

    • Note: The Battle of the Sections is close (with Section C holding a narrow lead), and it’s still anyone’s game! Remember that the winning sedition will get free admission (with food and alcohol) to our End of Semester Bash!

So stop by and make a cash donation, or bring your loose change in and sabotage another section 🙂

All of the money raised next week will go directly toward our summer grants for students pursuing unpaid public interest work next summer.

APALSA’s Statement re: SFFA v. Harvard: Today, October 31st, the U.S. Supreme Court will hear two lawsuits–one against Harvard University and one against University of North Carolina (“UNC”)–brought by anti-affirmative action group Students for Fair Admissions (“SFFA”). SFFA asks the Supreme Court to ban the consideration of race in college admissions, arguing that both Harvard and UNC discriminate against Asian American applicants. As the Supreme Court prepares to hear these oral arguments at the end of the month, we stand at a critical crossroads–especially as Asian Americans.

Chicago-Kent Asian Pacific American Law Students Association (“APALSA”) stands firmly against SFFA, and in support of Chicago-Kent’s holistic approach to admissions, including the consideration of race. SFFA and all those filing together with them are wrong, and their arguments are both misleading and harmful to the Asian American community. While SFFA purports to condemn the “model minority myth,” their arguments and actions only serve to reinforce this trope and stereotype. Please read our whole statement, with resources to learn more.
