Chicago-Kent College of Law

Chicago-Kent College of Law

Legal education at IIT Chicago-Kent is scholarly yet pragmatic, broad-based yet personalized, demanding yet anything but rigid. There's an energy to the law school that derives partly from our proximity to Chicago's fast-paced legal community and partly from the caliber of the people here and their passion for their work. Faculty scholarship fuels our academic enterprise and brings a constant supply of fresh ideas to the classroom. Classes here are challenging and intensely engaging. Our low student-faculty ratio promotes day-to-day engagement with some of the most influential scholars and teachers in the nation.
